Leicester City fans react on Twitter to Shinji Okazaki deal

Coface Arena - Mainz Stand - SV Mainz 05

The Foxes signed the prolific international striker after a two-year spell with Mainz.

Leicester City have completed their second signing in as many days by bringing in Japanese international Shinji Okazaki from Bundesliga side Mainz on a four-year deal.

Okazaki scored 14 goals for mid table Mainz last season, and his two seasons at the club were his strongest during his five-year spell in Germany. The forward also has an impressive 43 goals in 92 matches for Japan.

He is the Foxes third signing this summer after Christian Fuchs and Robert Huth on Thursday, emphasising somewhat of a German slash Bundesliga influence on Nigel Pearson's signings.

The 29-year-old was delighted to realise a life-long ambition of turning out in the Premier League, and joins Maya Yoshida of Southampton as the division's Japanese representatives.

"I am very happy to be here," he is quoted as saying by the Leicester website. "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."

Leicester fans were certainly excited by the deal, and took to Twitter to share their opinions on Friday night:
