Leicester City Announce N’Golo Kante’s Replacement

Premier League champions Leicester City have announced the signing of Nice defensive midfielder Nampalys Mendy on a four-year-deal.


The 24-year-old will become the Foxes’ third signing of the summer following the arrival of Ron-Robert Zieler and Luis Hernandez.
The Frenchman has previously played for Claudio Ranieri at Monaco and is deemed an exciting prospect within French football.

Speaking to the club’s ​official website, Mendy expressed his delight at joining the champions, saying: “I am very happy to come to Leicester City. The team have just enjoyed a great season and it’s excellent to be here.


“For me I want to play at this level. I like the Premier League and I follow every match. It’s fast and physical and I want to impose myself on the league.

“I know the coach (Claudio Ranieri), I know his mentality and I know his philosophy. When he speaks it’s direct and clear and for me I like this.”


The signing will no doubt draw further rumours about N’Golo Kante’s future with a number of big clubs including Chelsea and Real Madrid leading the race for his signature.
