Youri Tielemans Transfer | Youri Tielemans Leicester
Leicester have completed the club-record signing of Youri Tielemans from Monaco. The midfielder takes City’s summer spending to nearly £80m by signing a four-year deal, with the fee believed to be about £40m.
The 22-year-old Belgium international, who had been linked with Manchester United, spent the second half of last season on loan at the King Power Stadium. He told the club’s website: “It is such a great feeling to sign for this club. Ever since I arrived on loan last season, all the players, the staff and the fans have been fantastic with me, so I’m thrilled to be able to become a Leicester City player.
“I believe that we have the talent in our squad to achieve something special and for any player, that’s an exciting thing to be a part of. I really can’t wait to get started again with this club and do everything I can to help my teammates.”
Tielemans made 13 appearances, scoring three times, during his loan spell, which involved Adrien Silva moving to Monaco on a similar deal. Silva remains at Leicester after the end of his loan but is unlikely to be one of Brendan Rodgers’ first-choice midfielders.
Tielemans leaves Monaco two years after joining from Anderlecht for £21.6m. He joins Ayoze Pérez and James Justin as new arrivals under Rodgers this summer. The forward Pérez cost £30m – the previous club record – from Newcastle while the right-back Justin joined from Luton for a fee that could reportedly rise to about £8m.

Dortmund are heading into a new era with the loss of Jurgen Klopp in the dugout and the potential loss of both Ilkay Gundogan and Mats Hummels, and Tielemans could kick-start that new spell at the club – but, they’ll have to beat English champions Chelsea to his signature.
