As expected, Leicester City have confirmed the signing of Udinese defender Molla Wague, on loan with option to buy.
It emerged earlier today that a deal was in the pipeline, and this evening reports in Italy suggested his contract had been signed.
The Foxes have now officially confirmed the transfer, and will have the option to make the move permanent in the summer.
“Leicester City have bolstered their defensive options with the signing of Mali international centre back Molla Wagué on loan until the end of the season,” an official statement begins.
“Subject to receiving international clearance and his registration being approved by the Premier League and the Football Association, Molla becomes the Foxes’ second addition of 2017 after the capture of Wilfred Ndidi earlier this month.
“He joins on loan from Italian club Udinese with the consent of his Spanish parent club, Granada CF.
“French-born Wagué has been on loan at Udinese since 2014, having made 37 appearances for the Serie A outfit, but will now see out the 2016/17 campaign at Leicester City, with the Club having an option to make the deal permanent from Granada at the end of the season.”
