Leicester City have confirmed the capture of goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic from Hull City.
The Switzerland international has agreed a three-year contract and joins the Foxes for an undisclosed fee. The 32 year old will face competition for a starting spot at Leicester from first-choice goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel. On signing for the Foxes, Jakupovic said, - 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 is Leicester’s third senior signing of the summer transfer window. He follows Harry Maguire, also from Hull, and Vicente Iborra from Sevilla. The Bosnia-born keeper has flown out to Hong Kong to join the Foxes squad for the Premier League Asia Trophy.
