LEICESTER city sign Hull Goal-keeper

Leicester City have finished the signing of Swiss goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic from Hull City on a three-year bargain, the Premier League club said on Wednesday.

Jakupovic joined Hull in 2012 and played 54 games in five years, except for two short advance spells at fifth level side Leyton Orient. He showed up last season as Hull were consigned to the Championship.

"I'm exceptionally eager to be a piece of something unique here and I can hardly wait for the main amusement," Jakupovic revealed to Leicester's site.

"I knew from the earliest starting point that it will be troublesome for myself in light of the fact that Kasper (Schmeichel) is one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League.

"Will battle and I'm here to push. A solid rivalry is constantly great and that is just a positive thing. Without a doubt, I'll sit tight for my shot yet I am here and I'm exceptionally energized."

The exchange expense was not uncovered.

The 32-year-old is director Craig Shakespeare's third signing of the transfer window after defender Harry Maguire and midfielder Vicente Iborra.

Leicester will play West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League Asia Trophy later on Wednesday
