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 told lcfc.com: “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.

“I watched every match (last season) in the Premier League not all of them are easy. There were hard games.

“In the last few games the crowd were great and the players responded. It was an amazing result at the end of the season.”
