The central defender has played 77 official games (5 goals) at Reims in the past two seasons. The youth product of Anderlecht was active earlier in his career at the Dutch clubs Heerenveen and Excelsior and at Ostend. He had his big break with the Kustboys.
Our compatriot must become the successor of Wesley Fofana at Leicester. The Frenchman made the switch to Chelsea on Wednesday for an amount of around 75 million euros.
Faes is the fourth Belgian at Leicester, after Youri Tielemans, Timothy Castagne and Dennis Praet. That number may not remain at four for long. Both Tielemans and Praet are still being pulled.
Leicester has had a bad start to the new season and is currently at the bottom of the Premier League with 1 in 12.
