Leicester ink deal with winger Under of Roma
LONDON (UK) – Leicester City have roped in Turkey winger Cengiz Under from Italian club AS Roma on a season-long loan, said the club on Sunday.
According to local media reports, the club have agreed for an initial loan fee of 3 million euros with the option to buy the player from Roma at the end of the season.
The 23-year-old has scored 17 goals and provided 12 assists in 88 games for the Italian club after he arrived from Istanbul Basaksehir in 2017.
“I can’t wait to go to Leicester and start training. I’ve always wanted to play in England and this is a great opportunity to play in the Premier League,” Under said.
“I will try to help my team mates on the pitch and off the pitch and I believe that I can improve my performance every day. I think I am fast and can create lots of chances for my colleagues.”
Turkey capped him 21 times and he made his international debut in 2016. He will join team mate Caglar Soyuncu at Leicester.
“I am very happy to be able to play with Caglar and I always watched Leicester’s games because of him,” Under added.
