Leicester City Signs Belgium Full-Back Castagne From Atalanta Till 2025

Leicester City Signs Belgium Full-Back Castagne From Atalant

Leicester City has signed Belgian full-back Timothy Castagne from Italian side Atalanta on a five-year deal. He would be coming in as a possible replacement for Harry Maguire who left for Manchester United for a record transfer fee.

AllNews understands that Leicester City did not disclose the fee paid for the 24-year-old but British media reported the deal was worth £21.5 million.

Castagne made 96 appearances for Atalanta after joining the Serie A club from Belgian side Genk in 2017 and helped the team reach the Champions League quarterfinals last season.

"The 24-year-old Belgian international has put pen to paper on a five-year deal with the Foxes and will link up with his new teammates after the conclusion of the current international break," Leicester said in a statement.

Castagne, who has seven caps with Belgium, can play on either side of the defense and will replace left-back Ben Chilwell at the East Midlands club after the England international joined Chelsea last month.

Leicester, who finished fifth last term to qualify for the Europa League, begin their new league campaign against promoted West Bromwich Albion on 13 September
