Two defenders join Leicester City on scholarship deals

Two young centre backs have agreed scholarship contracts with Leicester City.

Johnly Yfeko has joined the club from Tottenham Hotspur, while Daniel Obi makes the switch from London-based independent academy EastSoccerBase.

The duo have joined the Foxes’ Under-16s squad and will move up to the Under-18s, managed by Trevor Peake, as first-year scholars in the 2019-20 season.

Leicester have been actively seeking to add central defenders to their Under-16 squad, with Chelsea defender Bright Arrey-Mbi recently on trial at Belvoir Drive.

It appears that Leicester have already made a decision on Arrey-Mbi, with the 15-year-old since appearing for West Ham Under-18s as a trialist.
