Leicester City have officially announced their capture of Black Stars defender Daniel Amartey, from Danish outfit FC Copenhagen.
Amartey completed a medical and took part in his first training session with his new teammates on Friday, the club’s official website reported.
His former side Copenhagen announced during the week that both teams had agreed on the deal, although the actual figure was kept under wraps. Reports placed it in the realm of £6m.
“It’s a great pleasure to join Leicester City. I know the Club have been interested in signing me for some time and that was a big part of my decision to come here.” Amartey told the club’s website, lcfc.com.
“All over Europe, people are talking about Leicester City and how well the Club is doing in the Premier League. The team plays exciting, attacking football and I’m looking forward to being part of it.”
Amartey played 63 games for his former side Copenhagen, after joining them in 2014 from Swedish outfit Djurgårdens IF. He played for Inter Allies in the Ghana Premier League before his move abroad.
Amartey has been capped six times for the Black Stars. He would join fellow Black Star Jeffrey Schlupp at the King Power Stadium, as the Foxes continue their surprise form this season, currently joint top in the English Premier League.
