Today 12th Sept Leicester City have confirmed that former Liverpool scout Eduardo Macia has joined the club as their new Head of Senior Player Recruitment.

The post had been vacant since Macia’s predecessor Ben Wrigglesworth was snapped up by fellow Premier League outfit Arsenal.

Wrigglesworth was the man who identified and signed Riyad Mahrez and N’Golo Kante, with the duo playing crucial roles in helping the Foxes to the Premier League crown last season.

On the other hand, Macia, who has also worked as a scout at Valencia and Real Betis, will not for the first time work alongside Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri.
