Caglar Soyuncu has been granted a work permit to play in the Premier League this season.
Soyuncu’s agent Mustafa Dogru revealed to Turkish-Football on Monday that they expected his paperwork to go through by Friday.
The Home Office granted the Turkey international permission a day early.
Soyuncu will arrive in England tonight and join his teammates.
Foxes manager Claude Puel released a statement confirming that the 22-year-old will join the team but will not feature against Wolves at the King Power Stadium.
Puel said: “He is a Leicester player. We are happy and wish him a good welcome. He will arrive tonight. He will not be fit for this game. After a little injury, he will come back into training.”
Soyuncu will however, be in attendance for his first game as an official Leicester City player.
The young defender is not expected to be match fit until the Liverpool clash on 1 September at the King Power stadium.
The former Altinordu centre-back is likely to miss the Southampton game next week.
Soyuncu recently recovered from a muscle injury which forced him to miss the last few weeks of pre-season training at Freiburg.
