Leicester City has announced the signing of Spanish defender Luis Hernandez on a four year deal.

The 27-year-old will join the Foxes on a free transfer in July after his contact with Spanish side Sporting Gijon expires.

Hernandez came through the Real Madrid youth academy and made his debut for Sporting Gijon back in 2012 in Spain's second tier.

He spent last season playing in Spain's top flight after his side were promoted to La Liga.

Wenger believes Jamie Vardy will stay at Leicester

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has admitted he expects Jamie Vardy to stay at Leicester.

The Frenchman appears ready for defeat in his chase for the striker after the Gunners triggered his £20million release clause.

Vardy is currently with England at Euro 2016 and scored in their 2-1 win over Wales on Thursday. He has insisted he would not make a decision on his future until after England's involvement in France ended.

But Wenger, in an interview with Chinese TV, said he believes the 28-year-old is ready to remain loyal to last season's shock Premier League champions.

He said: "Jamie Vardy is, at the moment, at Leicester and from what I know, he will stay at Leicester."

Leicester made a counter offer to Vardy, who only signed his most recent contract until 2019 in February, to try to convince him to stay at the King Power Stadium, although it is understood they could not match Arsenal's deal.

Is the party over for Jamie Vardy lookalike postie?

A Jamie Vardy lookalike who posed with the star footballer after Leicester City's historic title win has claimed the striker has blocked him on Twitter.

The 29-year-old postman shot to fame when he was pictured arm-in-arm with a delighted-looking Vardy aboard the team coach after the Premier League trophy win.

Lee Chapman was left "gutted", according to his management company, after the England international apparently barred him from seeing his social media posts.

According to his manager Andy Harmer, who has been a David Beckham lookalike for 17 years, the lifelong Foxes fan was asked not to tag himself in photos of Vardy.

He's got blocked on Twitter, even though he's been a Leicester fan all his life and Vardy is his hero.

All he's done is to go with the flow, he's done things for charity, and turned up to the ground for the kit launch to pose for photos with the fans.

I could understand if he was posting things as Jamie Vardy, or running up a bar bill, but he hasn't done anything like that.

He's gutted. I think it's tarnished what's happened a little bit.

Vardy's agent, John Morris, from Key Sports Management, denied knowing anything about the social media block.

Speaking to The Sun, he said:

I wish Lee all the best. I've met him and he comes across as a really nice guy. But if anything happens to anybody, whether you are a sports person or a movie star, you have to be protected.

In-demand Leicester midfielder N'Golo Kante insists he is happy at the Premier League champions - "for now".

The 25-year-old's stunning debut season in the top flight helped the Foxes become shock runaway champions, finishing 10 points clear of Arsenal.

Kante joined from Caen for £5.6 million and was nominated for the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year award, which went to Leicester team-mate Riyad Mahrez.

Arsenal, Paris St Germain and Juventus have all been linked with the Paris-born player, who only made his France debut in March.

But Kante, part of Didier Deschamps' France squad for a Euro 2016 campaign which begins with group games against Romania, Albania and Switzerland, remains focused on his international duties.

For now, I am happy at Leicester, I do not pay too much attention to everything that is said. For now, I am in Leicester and I focus on the Euros.

I think that my season at Leicester surprised everybody. People liked to see a new Premier League champion. We had a magnificent season. And then, my debut with France went well. Maybe my journey also helps compared to other people who come from amateur football.

I try to stay the same. I am not aware that my personality is different.

– N'Golo Kante
