Centre-half Sam Hughes is leaving Chester and will join Leicester City’s development squad on July 1st.
The 20 year old has agreed a three year deal with the Foxes.
There was plenty of interest in the defender who became Chester’s youngest ever captain this season when he took the armband for game against Tranmere Rovers.
Wolves, Swansea City, Burnley, Fulham and Crystal Palace were all linked with a move in January and Barnsley had a £75,000 bid rejected.
It was believed the club were hoping they could get a figure in the region of £150,000.
Reports indicate that £125,000 was enough for the deal to be completed.
On the official Leicester City website a statement read.
“The powerful centre-half was Chester’s Player of the Year last season, winning a host of admirers for his mature and consistent performances at the heart of the Blues defence.
“He joins City following the expiration of his contract and the Club would like to extend its thanks to Chester CEO Mark Maguire for his support for the player and efforts to facilitate the move.”
