20-year-old former Feyenoord forward Liandro Martis has decided to join Premier League defending champions Leicester city, despite already having a trial with Manchester United recently.

The Curacao international caught the eyes of Man United scouts after a brilliant goal in a pre-season friendly, for Oldham Athletic against Preston North End.

According to reports, Martis is about to sign a three-year deal with Leicester city shortly.

Right now Martis is a free agent, who was previously a part of Dutch side Feyenoord’s U18 and U19 squad, and later joined Willem II U21 on a free transfer. Martis scored for Leicester City against Chesterfield side in a pre-season friendly.

League One club Oldham also approached him to acquire his services, but since Manchester United and Leicester city both have shown interest in signing the lad, it is very unlikely he will join them.

Martis said in an interview:

‘I went into Leicester for a day and felt comfortable and got an offer,’

‘Then I went to Manchester United for a week and received good feedback from Warren Joyce and could have earned a deal had I waited, but I just want to get my career started.

‘I am confident in my ability. I’ve played a number of games to obtain fitness and have done well.

‘I played against League Two Crewe and scored and laid on an assist and then played in a game with Tranmere where I help set up a number of goals before I went Oldham and scored against a championship Preston. Oldham have offered me a deal and we have been in negotiations for two weeks.

‘I am nearing a decision on my future and I want to make the right decision for the next stage of my career.’
