£19m Leicester City Summer Signing Could Make Debut Against Liverpool

Leicester City fans could see summer signing Caglar Soyuncu make his debut this weekend.

The Turkey international made the move to Leicester in a £19 million move from Bundesliga club Freiburg.

The 22-year-old was granted his work-permit earlier this month but has been recovering from a minor thigh injury.

Soyuncuis expected to be available for selection this weekend after beginning light-training last week.

However, manager Claud Puel has hinted that Soyuncu may play U23 football before featuring for the first-team.

“We will see when he can play, and whether he can start with the under-23s, for example,” Puel stated before Leicester’s clash with Southampton on Saturday.

Turkish-Football recently reported that Soyuncu is targeting a return in early September.
