Leicester complete signing of defender Wout Faes from Reims for £15m

Leicester City have completed the signing of defender Wout Faes from Reims for a fee of £15m.

Faes, who was named Reims’ player of the season for 2021-22, will join Leicester as a replacement for Wesley Fofana, who moved to Chelsea this week.

The 24-year-old made his debut for Belgium in the Nations League in June this year.

Faes is Leicester’s second summer signing after they signed Alex Smithies as a backup goalkeeper on a free transfer.

“This is the dream step in my career and I’m very happy to be here,” said Faes, whose one senior Belgium cap came as a substitute in a Nations League win over Poland.

“I’m progressing year after year, and I hope to continue doing the same here. All the facilities and knowledge is here to help me to get even better.

“I will have to work hard, but I will give 100 per cent to help the team.”
