Leicester have completed the signing of Australian defender Harry Souttar from Stoke City in a £15m deal that could eventually rise to £20m with add-ons.
The 24-year-old centre-back has joined the Foxes on a five-and-a-half-year deal until the summer of 2028.
There was a lot of interest in Souttar, but it was still likely that he would move to King Power Stadium.
Born in Aberdeen, Souttar’s career started at Celtic before joining Dundee United and then joining Stoke in 2016.
Dundee United are set to benefit from a sizeable sell-out clause, with the Scottish Premiership club likely to earn around £3m from the deal.
In 2019, Souttar opted to play international football for Australia, where his mother was born.
He won 13 caps and was part of the squad that reached the round of 16 at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
