KRAKOW, Poland. August 3 (PSN) – Bartosz Kapustka is the latest major signing to join the English champions – Leicester City FC.

The Poland international and Cracovia Krakow midfielder penned a five-year contract deal with the Premiership outfit on Wednesday.

The 19-year-old spent the last four years playing for the Krakow club in the Ekstraklasa. There he acclaimed top ratings, eventually becoming a key player in his final season.

Last season he appeared in 33 matches in the Ekstraklasa and scored 4 goals. He ended the season with a trip to the UEFA EURO 2016 in France where he impressed millions watching Poland’s group stage encounter with Northern Ireland.

On the national team he has scored two goals in 11 caps.

Kapustka joins fellow compatriot Marcin Wasilewski at Leicester, who represented the English club for the past three seasons.

With Leicester winning its first national championship in history they are in heavy preparation for their upcoming appearance in the UEFA Champions League group stage.

The Pole will wear the number 14 at his new club.

Kapustka later made his debut for Leicester on the same day, playing in the final International Champions Cup fixture at Friends Arena.

Leicester lost 4:2 to Barcelona FC, with Kapustka coming on in the 62nd minute of the exhibition game – just hours after freshly signing with the club.
