Leicester complete €24m signing of Timothy Castagne

Leicester City have signed Belgian right-back Timothy Castagne from Atalanta.

24-year-old Castagne has joined the English side for a fee of €24m (£21.5m) and penned a five-year deal.

The seven-time Belgium international spent three years at Atalanta as part of Gian Piero Gasperini’s impressive side.

Castagne is a right-back but can also play on the left, a position in which the Foxes need depth after losing Ben Chilwell.

He is the third national team player of Belgium at the King Power after Youri Tielemans and Dennis Praet.

Paris Saint-Germain also looked at Castagne as a Thomas Meunier replacement, but his future is in the Premier League.

Atalanta are moving quickly to replace Castagne by bringing in Rick Karsdorp from Roma.
