Leicester bolster defence with Soyuncu and Benkovic deals
Leicester City strengthened their defense with the signings of Caglar Soyuncu and Filip Benkovic before the transfer window shut on Thursday.
Soyuncu, who has been capped 15 times by Turkey, completed a move from Freiburg after signing a five-year deal.
The 21-year-old arrives at the King Power Stadium on the back of an impressive 2017-18 campaign with Zagreb in which he made 30 appearances in all competitions and helped them clinch the Croatian league title.
"Filip is an exciting young player who has the potential to develop even more at Leicester," Leicester boss Claude Puel told the club website.
"He has made a big contribution to Dinamo Zagreb over the last three years and has also benefited from experiencing European football."
The defensive pair will link up with their new teammates ahead of Friday's league opener against Manchester United.
