Rubio to sign for Leicester


Premier League champions Leicester will sign Raul Uche Rubio from Rayo Vallecano for an undisclosed fee on July 1.

The 18-year-old has agreed a four-year deal with the Foxes and will become Claudio Ranieri's third signing of the summer when he finalises his move to the King Power Stadium on Friday.

"I like the Premier League. Leicester fits the profile, they are hard-working," Uche is quoted as saying to Spanish newspaper AS.

"I think I will adapt well. My style of play is more like English than Spanish football. I have a more physical game.

"Until recently, I did not know much. My agent told me there was someone from England but I did not know the team.

"When I found out, we went over and decided to sign for them."
