Leicester confirm signing of defender Harry Souttar from Stoke City

Leicester have finalised the signing of Australian centre-back Harry Souttar from Stoke on a permanent deal.

The 24-year-old returned from a serious knee injury only weeks before the World Cup but put in some excellent performances as Australia reached the knockout stages.

90min understands that a fee of £15m has been agreed for Souttar, who has now put pen to paper on his contract at the King Power Stadium.

Leicester have endured a tricky winter window, missing out on a number of targets, but they have managed to bring in three new faces.

Brazilian winger Tete has joined on loan from Shakhtar Donetsk after his loan with Lyon was terminated, while 20-year-old Danish left-back Victor Kristiansen will join Souttar in attempting to shore up Brendan Rodgers' defence.
