Leicester have signed goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic from Hull for an undisclosed fee.
The 32-year-old has penned a three-year deal with the Foxes and becomes Craig Shakespeare’s fourth signing of the summer.
Jakupovic will join up with his new team-mates in Hong Kong, with
“I’m very happy and excited that the deal is finally done. I’m very excited to be a part of something special here and I can’t wait for the first game,” he told LCFCTV.
“I knew from the beginning that it will be difficult for myself because Kasper [Schmeichel] is one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League.
“I’m going to fight and I’m here to push. A healthy competition is always good and that’s only a positive thing. For sure, I’ll wait for my chance but I am here and I’m very excited.”
Jakupovic kept six clean sheets for Hull last season, including against Manchester United and Liverpool, but was unable to prevent them from suffering relegation from the Premier League.
Leicester have already signed Harry Maguire – also from Hull this summer – as well as Vincent Iborra and Sam Hughes.
