UPDATED – 3pm Friday 16th Jan… his PERMIT IS IN !!! He is a Leicester City Player, it is all confirmed !!
t’s the news all Leicester City fans have been hoping for, a real quality striker.
Many of us have been looking perhaps for a proven striker, like Defoe, but if you ask us, this guy could be another major coup for Nigel Pearson and his team.
The media, including Talk Sport and BBC radio have been reporting what a star in the making this guy is, and that Leicester may have already done the “deal of the transfer window”
Leicester City have agreed the signing of Andrej Kramaric for a club-record fee, believed to be close to £9.7m, and the Croatia striker’s transfer from HNK Rijeka is set to go through subject to a work permit being granted. The signing of Kramaric represents quite a coup for Leicester, given that Chelsea have also pursued the Croatian international.
The 23-year-old has scored 28 goals in 24 appearances for Rijeka and the national team this season and had looked to be on his way to Stamford Bridge in this window. However, it appears that Rijeka’s asking price and the fact that Leicester are able to guarantee Kramaric regular first-team football has swung the deal in favour of the Midlands club.
We hear that Cambiasso was also influential in persuading him to join us by the way !
Will he partner Ulloa up front ? Or Vardy ? Or Nugent ??
So let us know YOUR thoughts and comments, could this signing be part of The Great Escape ?
