Two Leicester directors join OH-Leuven board

Leicester City are strengthening their presence at Belgian partners OH-Leuven.

The King Power Group completed their purchase of OHL last week and it's been confirmed two Leicester directors will join the board.

The English club's CEO Susan Whelan and sports director Jon Rudkin will take seats on the OHL board.

The Thai group acquired 92 percent of OHL shares, with the remaining eight per cent in the hands of local interest.

Leicester and OHL supremo Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha said: "We want this club to realise its potential. Investments in staff and infrastructure will form the basis, but also the interaction with supporters, without losing sight of the social role of the club.

"In the end, we want to create a competitive club at the highest level in Belgium."
