Leicester City have signed defender Wout Faes from French club Reims.
Faes has entered into a five-year deal for an undisclosed fee, with the move subject to international approval.
“It’s an incredible feeling – it hasn’t sunk in yet. It’s the dream step in my career and I’m very happy to be here,” said Faes.
“I’m making progress year after year and I hope I can continue to do that here.
“All the facilities and knowledge are here to help me get even better. I will have to work hard but I will give 100% to help the team.”
Faes, who came through the ranks at Anderlecht, signed for Ligue 1 club Reims in 2020 and has made three appearances for the club this season.
He made 37 league appearances for them last season, scoring four goals as they finished 12th in the league.
Faes has one cap for Belgium, as a substitute in a Nations League game against Poland in June.
