Leicester City have submitted their updated squad list for the remainder of the 2020-2021 season to the English Premier League. This followed the conclusion of the winter transfer market. And the official website of the Premier League confirmed that former Chelsea goalkeeper Kelechi Chibueze is on Leicester City’s list.
Allnigeriasoccer.com broke the news 32 days ago that Chibueze has put pen to paper on his first professional contract with Leicester City. This after impressing his teammates and coaching staff alike while on trial with the King Power Stadium outfit.
The Foxes monitored his situation for more than a year before signing him to a deal.
The 17-year-old glovesman was on the books of Chelsea for a decade before his departure in October 2020. Despite signing a scholarship deal with the Blues just before the start of this season.
Chibueze has been registered as an U21 player in Leicester City’s Premier League squad as he was born after January 1, 1999.
He was in goal for Leicester City against West Brom in the U18 Premier League last November. And his second squad involvement for the age group was against Norwich City last weekend. But he was a non-playing substitute.
Kelechi Iheanacho is listed as a homegrown player in the Leicester squad. Wilfred Ndidi has also been registered along with U21 players Daniel Obi and Chituru Odunze.
