Leicester sign left-back Kristiansen from Copenhagen

Leicester have beefed up their defensive options in a bid to stay in the Premier League by signing Danish full-back Victor Kristiansen from FC Copenhagen for an undisclosed fee.

The 20-year-old left-back, a cap for his country’s under-21 team, has signed a five-and-a-half-year deal and will join the Foxes subject to international clearance.

“The Premier League is probably the best league in the world and Leicester are a top team, so of course I was excited. It was a no-brainer for me to say yes to this great opportunity,” Kristiansen told Leicester’s website.

Kristiansen played in all six of the Copenhagen Champions League group stage games this season, facing Manchester City twice.

He will not be eligible to face Brighton in the Premier League on Saturday.

Leicester are 15th in the Premier League, just two points above the relegation zone.
