Ryan Bertrand set to join Leicester City

Thu 01 July 2021 | 13:31

The former England international is set to make a move to Leicester City.

Ryan Bertrand

has put pen to paper for a two-year contract with

Leicester City

, with an option to make it three years, as he became a free agent after seven years at

Southampton

.

The 31-year-old will reunite with Leicester manager

Brendan Rodgers

, who coached the Chelsea youth and Bertrand was in the club’s academy.

James Justin, the Leicester left-back, sustained a knee injury which saw him sidelined and Bertrand will compete with Luke Thomas for a place in the starting XI when the new season begins.

He is Leicester’s second signing this summer with Red Bull Salzburg’s Patson Daka being the first to join the club.

They will go into the Premier League season in a battle against Wolves on August 14.
