Son of a gun Issa Toure pens scholarship forms with Leicester

Leicester City have signed the son of senior coach Kolo Toure to a new deal.

Issa Toure has joined on a two-year scholarship.

Unlike his defender father, Yassine is a right-winger who wears the number seven shirt.

He also qualifies to play for England and the Ivory Coast.

The youngster was born while Kolo was playing for Arsenal.

And he joined Leicester from Celtic as an under-14 after his dad arrived as part of Brendan Rodgers' coaching staff.

In December, he was offered a two-year scholarship with the club, says The Sun.

That means he will play for City's under-18s until the end of the 2023-24 season.
