Foxes sign Okazaki from Mainz

Leicester have announced the signing of Japanese striker Shinji Okazaki from Mainz, subject to a work permit and international clearance.

The 29-year-old moves to the King Power Stadium for an undisclosed fee.

He becomes the Foxes' third summer signing after Robert Huth and Christian Fuchs. Okazaki has signed a four-year deal.

He has scored 43 goals in 93 games for Japan and struck nine times in the Bundesliga for Mainz last season.

Okazaki said: "I am very happy to be here. To play in the Premier League is my dream and I will make every effort to help the team here at Leicester City. I will do my best to show how I can play and try to make a lot of goals for the supporters.
