Premier League champions Leicester City have announced the transfer of Sporting Gijon defender Luis Hernandez, with the player signing a four-year deal with the Foxes. Claudio Ranieri's club won't have to pay a transfer fee for Hernandez as the 27-year-old defender leaves Sporting Gijon on July 1st when his contract expires.
Hernandez has risen through the youth system at Real Madrid but was unable to make it at the Blancos first team so he got sold to Sporting Gijon in 2012. He was a first-team regular last season, with 36 appearances in the starting line-up, helping Gijon survive in the Primera Liga for another year. He has made 136 league appearances for Sporting Gijon and managed to score a top-flight goal.
Luis Hernandez becomes the second signing of the summer for Leicester City after Germany goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler joined the club. Hernandez will have to compete with Foxes captain Wes Morgan and Robert Huth for a place in the first eleven, but since Leicester will also play in the Champions League it is believed that Claudio Ranieri will try to rotate his players as much as possible.
Leicester City are 28/1 at Bet365 to win the Premier League title again next season.

Leicester City keeps their transfer policy as they used to which is smart. They don't want to spend money around on players, they keep on signing players on a free transfers. Instead of spending money on players they will improve their stadium and brend I suppose. I do not know much about Luis Hernandez, watched him few times this season and I can say that he is decent. Probably Ranieri wants to improve competition in defense of his squad.
And why you should spend crazy amounts of money if you could become a champion with the players you have. It's up to the manager to make the players he has to play above their potential and it's exactly what Ranieri did last season. Some of the "leading teams" managers could learn from the Italian because not everything dependence from the huge budget.
