Vancouver Whitecaps have confirmed via their official club website today that their 16-year-old goalkeeper Chituru Odunze will join Leicester on Monday for a two-week trial.
The teenager is part of the Canadian outfit's developmental squad, and he has a history of playing in Britain, having grown up in London.
Odunze also spent time at Cardiff City, Chelsea and West Ham in their academies as a youth player.
The 16-year-old obviously has a lot of potential, and he already possesses the kind of frame that many goalkeepers will surely be envious of.
The goalkeeper, who now has United States citizenship, will be desperate to prove that he has what it takes to be a success in the Premier League with Leicester.
Unfortunately for him, however, he only has two weeks to showcase his ability.
If Leicester do decide to offer Odunze a more permanent contract after his trial period, it will certainly be made with one eye on the future.
The 16-year-old certainly has the ability, but will he have enough time to show Foxes boss Claude Puel what he is truly capable of? Only time will tell.
