Leicester City have confirmed the signing of Monaco defender Youri Tielemans on a loan deal running until the end of the summer.
As part of the deal, Foxes outcast Adrien Silva will move in the opposite direction to join the Ligue 1 strugglers, also on loan.
A number of sides had been linked with a move for 21-year-old Tielemans, including Arsenal and Newcastle United, following his form for Monaco, where he had contributed five goals this term.
"I'm really excited to get going," the Belgian told the Leicester website. "The Premier League is one of the best leagues in the world and when I was young, I always watched Premier League games. I'm really happy to be here and I'm excited to get started.
"It's a big family. Everybody is really kind and really good with me. I think it will be really good here."
The capture of Tielemans represents the Foxes' only piece of incoming transfer business this month. body check tags ::
