Thomas excited for Foxes chance

George Thomas is eager to get his Leicester career up and running after joining the club from Coventry City on Tuesday.

The Welsh under 20 international signed a three-year contract with the Foxes, having netted nine times in 36 appearances for the Sky Blues last term.

The Leicester-born also netted the winner as Coventry claimed the EFL Trophy with a 2-1 win over Oxford United at Wembley.

After arriving at Leicester, he told the club's official website: "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.

“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.”

Thomas will link up with the Foxes' Development Squad where he will look to force his way into manager Craig Shakespeare's plans.

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.”
