          Belgian international Youri Tielemans has joined Leicester City for a record £40million.

          After a successful loan spell with the Foxes last season, the 22-year-old has finalised a permanent deal from Monaco.

          Tielemans becomes Leicester's third signing of the summer: boss Brendan Rodgers also snapping up Ayoze Perez from Newcastle and young full-back James Justin from Luton. 

          Exciting project

          Signed on loan by the ill-fated Claude Puel last January, Tielemans spoke of his excitement at moving to the Kingpower Stadium. 

          "I really can't wait to get started again with this club," said Tielemans.

          "I believe that we have the talent in our squad to achieve something special and for any player, that's an exciting thing to be a part of."

          Premier League pedigree

          Rodgers, meanwhile, outlined the impact Tielemans had already made in the Premier League: 

          "I'm delighted that Youri has chosen to be part of Leicester City's journey," he said. "It's an incredibly exciting time for this football club and to be able to bring players of Youri's quality here is an indication of the hunger for success we have here.

          "Youri fit brilliantly into the squad last season. He's already shown that he's capable of making an impact in the Premier League and he adds another option to an incredibly talented group of players here at Leicester City."

          The midfielder also has 23 caps for Belgium and played at the 2018 World Cup.
