Nigerian Defender Signs Two-Year Deal With Leicester City understands that promising Nigerian defender Daniel Obi is now a bona fide player of Premier League side Leicester City.

Obi has been training with the Foxes youth team since November 2018 and there was an agreement for the player to sign a two-year scholarship on July 1, 2019.

Leicester City have not yet confirmed their new first-year scholars for the 2019-2020 season, but this website has been informed that the central defender is among the prospects in the intake, having penned a two-year deal.

Although Obi grew up in the United Kingdom, he has not forgotten his roots and was part of the Team Nigeria UK squad that defeated Team Zimbabwe UK in an international friendly in London.

He has already debuted for Leicester City U18s, against Norwich City in an U18 Premier League fixture in April 2019.

Derby County, Birmingham City and Leeds United had explored the possibility of signing the center back but he chose to join Leicester City.
