Leicester City have completed the signing of winger Anthony Knockaert from French side Guingamp.
The 20-year-old, who has also been
linked with a move to Premier League side Newcastle United,
has agreed terms and has signed a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.
Foxes manager Nigel Pearson told
BBC Radio Leicester:
"He has an awful lot of quality and enthusiasm.
"I am looking forward to him being a big part of our season."
Knockaert, who featured in Saturday's behind-closed-doors match against Lincoln City, becomes City's sixth summer signing.
Pearson added: "We have watched him on several occasions over a sustained period and he has all of the attributes to be successful in the Championship.
"He gives us a number of options going forward as he can play on either flank and I'm sure he'll be a player with the ability to excite supporters."
The Foxes have already signed Manchester United pair Ritchie De Laet and Matty James as well as Jamie Vardy, Marko Futacs and
