Leicester City have confirmed the signing of Danish left-back Victor Kristiansen from Copenhagen.

Kristiansen, a Denmark Under-21 international, has signed a five-and-a-half-year deal, with Leicester reportedly paying Copenhagen £17million (€19m).

The Foxes were in need of defensive reinforcements, particularly at full-back, with James Justin and Ricardo Pereira both out with long-term injuries, though the latter could return to action soon. Ryan Bertrand, meanwhile, has been out of action for over a year.

Kristiansen, 20, told the club’s official website: “It feels amazing. It’s really exciting to be here and I’m so excited to meet everyone at the club, as well as the fans.

“The Premier League is probably the best league in the world, and Leicester is a top team, so of course, I was excited. It was a no-brainer for me to say yes to this great opportunity.”

Leicester might be a “top team” in Kristiansen’s eyes, but they are struggling this season.

Brendan Rodgers’ team sit 15th, just two points above the bottom three, ahead of Saturday’s home game against Brighton and Hove Albion.

Leicester have lost all four league games since the competition restarted after the World Cup, having gone on a run of four wins from five matches prior to the break.
