DONE DEAL: Leicester midfielder Adrien Silva joins Monaco

Leicester City midfielder Adrien Silva will spend the 2019/20 campaign on loan with Ligue 1 side AS Monaco.

The 30-year-old joined City from Sporting Lisbon in 2017, where he scored 32 goals in 169 league appearances for the Portuguese side.

Silva has featured for City 21 times in all competitions and spent the second half of last season on loan with AS Monaco, helping them to five wins and six draws in 15 games.

He has represented his country 21 times at senior level, scoring once, and was part of the Portugal squad that won the UEFA European Championships in 2016, while also featuring for them at the World Cup in Russia in 2018.

Silva joins Foxes' teammate Islam Slimani on loan at AS Monaco for the 2019/20 campaign and could feature for them this weekend when they take on Nimes at Stade Louis II on Sunday.
