Reggae Boy DeCordova Reid joins Leicester City on three year deal

Reggae Boy Bobby DeCordova Reid is Leicester City's second signing under new manager Steve Cooper, who replaced Enzo Maresca last month after he joined the Foxes on a free transfer.

The 31 year old became a free agent after his contract with Fulham expired at the end of last month and has signed a 3 year agreement with his new club.

DeCordova Reid makes the move after talks broke down between himself and Fulham who had offered the midfielder a two-year contract to stay at Craven Cottage.

The Jamaican international joined Fulham, initially on loan, in 2019 and went on to make more than 200 appearances for the club.

He has ended his five year stint with the Cottagers with an impressive 50 goal involvement, 32 goals and 18 assists, in his 209 appearances. DeCordova-reid says the project put forward by manager Steve Cooper convinced him to join the club.

Leicester City won the championship title last season to return to the Premier League at the first attempt, having been relegated at the end of the 2022/23 season.

Decordova-Reid joins a growing list of Jamaicans to have signed for the 2016 EPL champions and follows the likes of Wes Morgan, Jermaine Beckford, Liam Moore and most recently, Demarai Gray.

DeCordova Reid has won 33 caps for Jamaica, featuring at the 2021 and 2023 CONCACAF Gold Cup, along with this summer's Copa América tournament.
