Harry Maguire sign a deal with Leicester city fc

A report says, Craig Shakespeare has made his first signing as permanent Leicester manager with the capture of Harry Maguire from relegated Hull.

The Foxes offered the 24-year-old centre-back a Premier League lifeline after the Tigers made a swift return to the Championship.

Maguire featured 29 times for the East Yorkshire outfit as they finished 18th in the standings, with his performances earning him the Fans' Player of the Season and Players' Player of the Season awards.

The Sheffield United youth product joins Shakespeare's side on a five-year deal for an undisclosed fee, and will provide competition for Wes Morgan, Robert Huth and Yohan Benalouane.

"It's obviously a very exciting time for myself. Once I had my eyes on this club, I always wanted to join. Thankfully I'm here so I can't wait to get the season started and kick on," he told LCFC TV.

"There were a number of clubs interested, but when I met the manager here, he pretty much swayed it into the direction of this club.

"He showed me the way that the club is going. It's on the up and it looks very promising for the future, so credit to the gaffer.

"You can see that with the structure of the club, it's going to look upwards rather than down so that was a big reason why, as soon as I knew there was an interest, I wanted to jump at the opportunity."
