Leicester City Fans React As £19m Signing Caglar Soyuncu Is Not Included In Squad Numbers List

Leicester City announced the squad numbers list on the official club Twitter account on Monday but there was one notable exception.

Transfer deadline signing Caglar Soyuncu was not given a number, leaving some fans worried about whether the move will go through.

The Turkey international will complete his £19m move to the Premier League outfit from Freiburg on a five-year deal depending on whether he is granted a work-permit.

There was concern among some supporters that Soyuncu may have had his work-permit denied.

The official Leicester City website does however, make it clear that Soyuncu is on the list but that his squad number is ‘to be confirmed’.

The 22-year-old is expected to be granted permission to pay in the Premier League based on his transfer fee, wages and the fact he was a first-team regular in the Bundesliga for Freiburg.

Soyuncu will become the second Turkish international to play for Leicester since Muzzi Izzet, once his transfer goes through.
