Benevento have pulled off a major coup in the signing of Leicester City forward Bartosz Kapustka. According to reports from Italy, the Polish international attacker will sign a season long loan deal for the Serie A minnows.

Benevento will announce the transfer of Kapustka this weekend and the player is said to have already provisionally agreed terms for a move to Italy.

The 21-year-old who has so far failed to force his way in to Leicester City's first-team plans on a regular basis, arrived at the Foxes in 2016 after the European Championships for a fee of 5 million euros and spent last season on loan at German club Freiburg.

Since then, Kapustka has returned to the club but has failed to impress significantly in the summer pre-season and thus will be sent out on loan to garner more top flight experience at Benevento.

His new club, seen by many as the drubbing boys of Italian league football, will be delighted to have secured such a major coup.
