Leicester sign goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic from Hull City

The English Premier League side Leicester City, have completed the signing of goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic from Hull City on a 3 year deal on Wednesday
The 32-year-old joined Hull in 2012 and played 54 games in 5 years, with the exception of two short loan spells at fifth tier side Leyton Orient.

Jakupovic made 22 league appearances last season as Hull were relegated to the Championship.
“I’m very excited to be a part of something special here and I can’t wait for the first game,” Jakupovic told Leicester’s website.
He said, “I knew from the beginning that it will be difficult for myself because Kasper (Schmeichel) is one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League.
“I’m going to fight and I’m here to push. A healthy competition is always good and that’s only a positive thing. For sure, I’ll wait for my chance but I am here and I’m very excited.”
The transfer fee was not disclosed.
The Swiss keeper is manager Craig Shakespeare’s third signing of the transfer window after defender Harry Maguire and midfielder Vicente Iborra.
Leicester will play West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League Asia Trophy later on Wednesday.
