Leicester City Sign Jakupovic From Hull City

Leicester City who parade Nigerian pair, Wilfred Ndidi and Ahmed Musa, have signed Bosnian-born Switzerland international goalkeeper Eldin Jakupović from relegated Hull City.

Jakupović, whose arrival was announced on Leicester's official website on Wednesday, signed a three-year deal with the 2015/2016 English Premier League champions.

A statement on Leicester's website reads: "The 32-year-old ‘keeper has put pen-to-paper on a three-year deal with the Foxes and will link up with his new team-mates for the first time in Hong Kong this week.

"Jakupović becomes Leicester City’s third signing of the summer transfer window, after the additions of his former Hull City team-mate Harry Maguire and midfielder Vicente Iborra from Sevilla.

"The experienced shot-stopper has played for seven professional football clubs across four different countries during his career and was one of Hull’s top performers last season."

Jakupović told LCFC TV: “I’m very happy and excited that the deal is finally done. I’m very excited to be a part of something special here and I can’t wait for the first game.

“I knew from the beginning that it will be difficult for myself because Kasper [Schmeichel] is one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League.

“I’m going to fight and I’m here to push. A healthy competition is always good and that’s only a positive thing. For sure, I’ll wait for my chance but I am here and I’m very excited.”
