Leicester City have today confirmed the capture of Sam Hughes from Chester and he goes into our Under 23 squad as anticipated.

Our development squad has in fact been boosted by the arrival of three players so far this summer, as Alex Pascanu and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall also step up to the Under 23 setup following their time last year with the Under 18s.

Both players have signed two year professional deals in recognition of their development so far, and Pascanu was our Academy Player of the Year last term and was recently called up by the Romanian Under 21s.

Hughes has signed a three year deal following agreement with Chester and his deal kicks in on July 1.

With most eyes on the coming Premier League campaign it’s good to see the club keeping their eyes on the future as well.
