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.
