Leicester City recently officially confirmed the signing of James Justin. The full-back arrives at the King Power Stadium from Luton Town. He has signed a five-year deal with the Foxes and will finally get the chance to test himself in the Premier League under Brendan Rodgers.
The defender, who can play at both left and right-back, has flourished for Luton in recent seasons. He was a key player for the Hatters last time out as they won the League One title. The 21-year-old is now ready to take his career to the next level.
Competition for places will be fierce at Leicester, but Justin has the potential to make himself a regular starter. His versatility should also ensure he gets more first team chances. He could go on to star for the Foxes for years to come.
Justin certainly has plenty of potential. This deal may well come to be regarded as very savvy business on Leicester’s part. The Luton-born defender is a truly modern full-back, possessing great pace and attacking instincts. These attributes will surely help him to flourish in the top flight.
Following the announcement of the deal, plenty of Leicester fans took to Twitter to welcome Justin to the club.
Great singing 🔥💙
