Leicester sign Coventry forward George Thomas on three-year contract

Paul Mariner pinpoints the strengths in Kelechi Iheanacho's game that make him the right man to help Leicester City.
The FC crew discuss Riyad Mahrez's performance at Leicester last season and weigh in on a potential move to Roma.

Leicester have announced the signing of George Thomas from Coventry for an undisclosed fee.

Thomas, 20, joins on a three-year contract and can play in midfield or as a striker.

Born in Leicester, he made his full Coventry debut in 2014 and scored nine times in 36 appearances last season.

"I'm buzzing, I'm delighted to get it over the line finally and I'm looking forward to the season coming and seeing what I can do," he told LCFC TV.

"I've seen a few of the boys in the changing room. It's all good at the minute. The facilities are unbelievable and I just can't wait to get started.

"It's my hometown, I only live 10-15 minutes away in Wigston. It's always good to play for your hometown team so hopefully I can push on from here."

He added: "I've played 50 odd games at professional level so maybe I have got that head start over other 20-year-olds in the country. Hopefully I can use that experience to get into the first team here.

"The aim is to play first team football and try and help the club. That's the aim, to try and hit the ground running."
