Youri Tielemans: Aston Villa agree deal to sign Leicester City midfielder

Belgian international Youri Tielemans, who began his senior career at Anderlecht, is set to join Aston Villa following an agreement reached with Leicester City.

Now aged 26, the midfielder will officially move to Villa on 1 July, upon the conclusion of his current contract with Leicester.

Rumours were abundant regarding interest from other clubs, including Arsenal, Manchester United, and Roma, particularly following Leicester’s demotion from the Premier League.

Tielemans is likely to be Villa’s inaugural summer signing. He came to Leicester in 2019 and was instrumental in their 2021 FA Cup victory.

His decisive goal secured Leicester’s 1-0 triumph against Chelsea in the final, contributing to a total of 28 goals in his 195 appearances across all competitions during his tenure with the Foxes.

He was initially loaned to Leicester from Monaco in January 2019, and the move was later solidified with a record-breaking £40m deal that July.

Tielemans has an impressive international resume as well, having competed in both the 2018 and 2022 World Cups and the Euro 2020.

He comes to Villa on the heels of their seventh-place finish in the Premier League last season, which resulted in their qualification for the Europa Conference League.

In a heartfelt video message on Instagram in May, Tielemans expressed his enduring gratitude to Leicester fans for their unwavering support.
