​Leicester have officially announced the signing of Monaco and Belgium midfielder Youri Tielemans on a four-year contract.

Tielemans joins the Foxes after an impressive loan spell with the club in the second half of last season, where he scored three goals and made four assists in 13 Premier League appearances.

Leicester announced the deal on Monday afternoon, declaring the fee 'undisclosed', although it is believed the 2015/16 Premier League winners will pay Monaco around £40m for his services.

He told the club's ​website: “It is such a great feeling to sign for this Football Club. Ever since I arrived on loan last season, all the players, the staff and the fans have been fantastic with me, so I’m thrilled to be able to become a Leicester City player.

“I believe that we have the talent in our squad to achieve something special and for any player, that’s an exciting thing to be a part of. I really can’t wait to get started again with this Club and do everything I can to help my team-mates.”
