Leicester land Hull stopper Jakupovic

Leicester, England: Leicester City have snapped up goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic from Hull City for an undisclosed fee, both clubs confirmed on Wednesday.

The 2015-16 Premier League champions have brought in the Bosnian-born Swiss on a three-year deal, with the fee in the region of £2.5m, according to British media reports.

The 32-year-old left the Tigers’ Portuguese training camp at the weekend to finalise the move, and he is now been confirmed as the East Midlands club’s third summer signing, following in the footsteps of former Hull team-mate Harry Maguire and Vicente Iborra, who arrived from Sevilla.

Jakupovic joined Hull in 2012 and was the club’s longest-serving player, making 55 appearances for the Yorkshire outfit, including 22 last season as Hull were relegated to the Championship.

Jakupovic, who has one international cap for Switzerland, is likely to be the deputy to first-choice keeper Kasper Schmeichel, but that didn't put him off a move to the King Power Stadium.

“I’m very happy the deal is finally done. I’m excited to be a part of something special here and I can’t wait for the first game,” said Jakupovic.
