Leicester City have signed Turkish international winger Cengiz Ünder from Serie A side Roma on loan until the end of the season.
The 23-year-old joined Roma three years ago from Istanbul Basaksehir.
Reports indicate that Leicester City have paid £2.7M loan fee and hold an option to buy him for around £22M.
Cengiz told Leicester City’s website: “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.
“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.
“I feel very good because my best friend plays for Leicester City. I am very happy to be able to play with Çağlar [Söyüncü] and I always watched Leicester’s games because of him.”
Under has made 21 appearances for Turkey since making his debut at the age of 19.
