Leicester City have announced the signing of Portugal international defender Ricardo Pereira from FC Porto on a five-year contract.
Pereira’s move to Leicester City, worth a reported £22 million (roughly $30 million), will be completed when the summer transfer window officially opens on 9 June. The arrival of Pereira is Leicester’s first move of the summer to fix the lack of depth at fullback, as the club have had just one out-and-out right-back in Danny Simpson. The 24-year-old made 43 appearances for the Portuguese champions this season, and was named alongside new teammate Adrien Silva in Portugal’s 23-man squad for this summer’s World Cup in Russia. Pereira will be reunited with manager Claude Puel having played under his stewardship during a loan spell at French side Nice in 2015/16. Speaking to LCFC TV, Pereira said: "I feel very happy to be here and I can’t wait to do my best to help the team. The atmosphere, the fans and the football of the Premier League makes it the best in the world. I am here to support the team and to help the Club to achieve its goals." May 21 - 6:25 PM
