Adrien Silva Officially Joins Leicester City Following Failed Summer Transfer

Midfielder Adrien Silva "finally joined" Premier League side Leicester City, according to the BBC. The club "missed the deadline to sign him in August by 14 seconds." FIFA rejected the 28-year-old's move from Sporting Lisbon in the summer "as the paperwork arrived too late." The Portugal int'l "has been training with Leicester throughout the winter." His £22M ($29.7M) deal was completed on Monday and he made his debut off the bench in Leicester's 3-0 win over Huddersfield on Monday. Silva, who was born in France, was part of the Portugal squad that won Euro 2016 (BBC, 1/1).
