You'd assume he knows Dendoncker from the Belgium set up.

That pair as a double pivot (as is the common parlance now) when we rotate could be useful.

we're realistically likely to have an additional 10-12 games at least next season, we need a squad. Good signing.

Can't argue with this as a free, before this season he was expected to go to Arsenal so he's obviously talented.
I would rather have YT for free than 90m for Rice

Looks like a great signing, on a free as well.
Would like to see Guendozi too.

Leicester fans seemed to be split 50/50 on their forums as to his effort/form so I am unsure about this but if Unai wants him then that tells me it's the right decision.

Hopefully he will be brilliant.
I think if Gerrard had stayed and we were to sell Douglas Luiz or SJM then the comments on here would resemble pretty much what the Leicester fans are saying about Tielemans. I have absolutely no doubt that Unai will get him back to his best form quickly.

As a side note, how is he only 26 and just entering his prime? Seems to have been around for ever.

I reckon we have enough players of that ilk now.  The next priority is to upgrade Bailey imo.

Romano's confirmed it now too.

Classic tap-in merchant stuff.

Although he did quote Ornstein this time

I think this signing means no Guendouzi.

That’s the way to start your summer transfer business. Great signing.

Officially official

Does he get to stretch today, or will that have to wait until pre-season on the basis that they’ll want the new kit in the photo ?

If you're like me and do the whole following our players on Instagram bollocks, take a look at Tielemans goodbye Leicester Post and have a look at the first 100 or so messages. Makes our Samata Tanzania fans from Facebook look normal.
