OFFICIAL: Abdul Fatawu Issahaku joins Leicester City on loan

Leicester City Football Club have confirmed the signing of Abdul Fatawu Issahaku in the ongoing transfer window.

The Ghanaian winger joins the Foxes on a season-long loan deal from Sporting Lisbon.

Leicester have an option to make the loan permanent and will have to pay €17million if they get promoted.

The 19-year-old arrives at King Power Stadium having impressed at domestic and international level in the early stages of his career.

He is expected to play a key role for club in the 2023/24 Sky Bet Championship season.

Fatawu said: “I’m so happy. This is an amazing moment for me, I’m happy to be here. For me, from looking at Leicester and how I felt about the coach, here is the best place for me. 

“This was the best moment for me to join Leicester. I chose them because I think they can grow me and help me mature. [Enzo Maresca] told me about the plans he has for me and how he wants me to play – how he wants to help me in my football.”

Born in the Ghanaian city of Tamale, Fatawu started his senior career with Steadfast FC, and quickly established himself as one of his country’s most exciting talents.
