The loan deal included Adrien Silva being exchanged for Tielemans, from Monaco for one season. However, Adrien Silva’s loan deal was not extended by A.S Monaco and he returns back to Leicester this season.
Tielemans is the second big signing under the new manager Brendan Rodgers with the prior incoming of Ayoze Perez from Newcastle in a £30 million deal.
Monaco brought Youri in a deal worth £23 million from Belgian club R.S.C Anderlecht, but only after one season he was sent on loan to Leicester.
Brendan Rodgers is very happy with his new signing and feels Youri has the potential to make a difference in the Premier League and have a good impact on his team. He told the media: “I’m delighted that Youri has chosen to be part of Leicester City’s journey. It’s an incredibly exciting time for this football club and to be able to bring players of Youri’s quality here is an indication of the hunger for success we have here.
“Youri fit brilliantly into the squad last season, he’s already shown that he’s capable of making an impact in the Premier League and he adds another option to an incredibly talented group of players here at Leicester City.”
