Leicester sign Atalanta's Castagne as Chilwell replacement

Leicester City have completed the signing of Timothy Castagne from Atalanta. 

The Belgian international full-back has signed a five-year deal at the King Power, and has cost the Premier League club €24million.

Castagne can play on either flank, but is seen as a like-for-like replacement for Ben Chilwell who has joined Chelsea.

The 24-year old played 33 times for Atalanta last season, including six games in their run to the Champions League quarter-finals.

During his time in Bergamo, Atalanta have qualified for the Champions League via Serie A in back-to-back seasons.

Castagne is currently with his Leicester team-mates Youri Tielemans and Dennis Praet with the Belgium squad, preparing for their UEFA Nations League game with Denmark.

He underwent his medical in Dusseldorf, Germany to avoid having to quarantine upon an arrival to England.

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers tried to sign Castagne while he was in charge at Celtic.

One the international break is over, the Foxes are due to make their start to the Premier League season on September 13 away to newcomers, West Brom.
