Leicester City have completed their fifth signing of the summer transfer window by reaching an agreement with Monaco for winger Rachid Ghezzal.

The 26-year-old has signed a four-year deal at the King Power Stadium for an undisclosed fee, which is thought to be in the region of £12.5m.

Ghezzal is an international teammate of Riyad Mahrez, who left the East Midlands outfit last month, and joins Jonny Evans, James Maddison, Ricardo Pereira and Danny Ward in making the move.

City boss Claude Puel already knows the Algerian from their time together at Lyon, where the 26-year-old started his career.

Puel told the club's official website: "I'm very pleased to welcome Rachid to Leicester City Football Club. He's an exciting addition to our group who will bring creativity and competition ahead of an important season for us.

"I know his qualities from my time at Lyon, where he was in the academy, and I look forward to seeing him test himself in the Premier League."

Ghezzal added: "I'm very excited and very happy to be here. I know the coach from Lyon and this is where I want to be. It's a good club and an ambitious one too. Leicester City has many great players and I hope we will have a great season."

Monaco snapped up the winger from Lyon on a free contract last summer.
