Keown: Leicester defender Soyuncu never looks troubled

Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown admits he's a fan of Leicester City's Caglar Soyuncu.

He wrote for BBC Sport: "The more I see of Leicester defender Caglar Soyuncu, the more I like him.

"He is only 23 but the Turkey international looks like a defender who is made for the demands of the modern game - agile, aggressive and good in the air, but also brave on the ball too.

"Soyuncu is not the tallest defender at 6ft 1in but he has got a very good spring. On the ground, he gets in the faces of attackers and he also never panics when he is in possession.

"Whatever situation he is in, he never really looks troubled to me."
