Leicester City have bolstered their youth ranks with the signing of former Norwich City defender Louis Ramsay. Ramsay came up through the Canaries youth teams, signing his first professional contract at Carrow Road in 2016.

A new chapter... Happy to sign for Leicester City FC #LCFC

Leicester’s newest signing spent last season on loan at Woking. He was a fixture in the squad, making 30 appearances in all competitions in spite of missing time due to an ankle injury. He was named to the substitutes bench for an FA Cup tie against Southampton, but has yet to make his senior debut.

Ramsay played for the Norwich U23s in 2016/17 under coach Dmitri Halajko, who is now the head of technical coaching for Leicester, and one suspects this has something to do with bringing the former Tottenham youth player to the King Power.

Ramsay is primarily a right back, although he can play on either side of the pitch. While scoring isn’t his forte, he can hit them from distance. His equaliser against Boro in the U18s was sublime (and I apologise in advance because there’s an ad in front of this one):

Ramsay will be the latest in a fast growing line of youngsters signed directly to the Development Squad, following the likes of forward Ryan Loft, attacking midfielder George Thomas, centre back Sam Hughes and goalkeeper Daniel Iverson.
