Leicester City have completed the signing of 18-year-old Bury midfielder Callum Hulme.

The youngster joins in a £100,000 move, according to Sky Sports, and has signed a three-year deal to become the club’s fifth addition to the Development Squad this summer.

Hulme made his professional debut for Bury against Grimsby Town last September and impressed then Bury manager Ryan Lowe.

“Callum is someone I have rated from the day I first saw him play,” Lowe said.

“I gave him the captain’s armband in the U23s when I was development coach 18 months ago and I also gave him his professional debut this season.

“I rate Callum highly and believe he has a big future.”

Hulme joins Ali Reghba, Vontae Daley-Campbell, George Hirst and Mitchell Clark in becoming a Leicester City player this summer.
