Exciting news.

According to the sources who have been monitoring this transfer saga, Leicester City have announced the signing of Silva this morning

The Foxes missed FIFA’s deadline by a mere 14 seconds, resulting in the failure to register Silva as a Leicester player. As it stands, the 28-year old cannot feature for City until the winter transfer window, which is when the club can submit the paperwork again; however, with the lawyers tirelessly working on the issue, it appears that the former Sporting player could play.

 

A UEFA Euro 2016 winner with Portugal, Adrien Silva was signed as a replacement for Danny Drinkwater. The now Chelsea player was sold to the the reigning champions in a record move, £30 million to be particular, leaving behind a huge gap in Craig Shakespeare’s side.
