Leicester City sign winger Cengiz Under on loan from Roma

Leicester are signing winger Cengiz Under on a season-long loan from Roma.

The 23-year-old Under was due to join up with his new teammates and manager Brendan Rodgers ahead of Sunday's game against Burnley. The move is subject to Premier League and international clearance.

Under made his debut for Turkey aged 19 and he will get to play in the Premier League alongside his international teammate Caglar Soyuncu.

“I feel very good because my best friend plays for Leicester City," Under said. "I am very happy to be able to play with Caglar and I always watched Leicester’s games because of him.”

Under began his senior career with Altinordu before moving to Istanbul Basaksehir in 2016 and then making the switch to Italy a year later. He has made 70 league appearances for Roma, scoring 13 goals.

Earlier, Timothy Castagne scored on his Leicester debut before Jamie Vardy netted two penalties in a season-opening 3-0 victory over newcomer West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League on last Sunday.

Castagne, a defensive signing from Atalanta, made an impact at the other end by heading in a cross from fellow Belgian Dennis Praet in the 56th minute.
