Pearson hints at Kramaric debut

January 16, 2015 15:36:22 UK

Andrej Kramaric is set to make his Leicester City debut against Stoke City on Saturday after being granted a work permit.

The 23-year-old striker moves to the Foxes from Croatian side HNK Rijeka in a deal that could eventually be worth £9.5million.

“We’ve watched Andrej for a long time so we knew we were signing a player that could add great quality to English football and I’m delighted that the relevant authorities have seen the situation the same way,” said City boss Nigel Pearson.

“He’s an extremely talented young footballer and I’m delighted we’ve been able to finalise his signing. He is potentially a very important addition for us.”

Kramaric agreed personal terms and passed his medical last week but Leicester had to apply for special dispensation as he did not qualify for a work permit.

The prolific striker has represented Croatia four times and has scored 28 goals in 31 games for Rijeka this season.

Leicester, 1.90 to be relegated this term, are available at 8.00 to beat Stoke 1-0, with Kramaric 3.20 to score at any time against the Potters.
