- Leicester City sign Conor Coady from Wolverhampton Wanderers
- The 30-year-old has signed a three-year deal with the Foxes
- He has represented England on 10 occasions
The 30-year-old defender, who has played 10 times for England at international level, joins the Foxes on a contract to the summer of 2026 for an undisclosed fee and adds considerable experience to the Club’s defensive ranks.
Coady spent the 2022/23 campaign on loan at Everton, featuring 25 times during his spell on Merseyside, and made over 300 appearances for Wolves.
Speaking to LCFC TV, he said: “I’m absolutely over the moon. I couldn’t wait to get down here, to obviously see everyone and get everything signed and boxed off. Now I’m here, I’m massively excited. I’ve been massively excited all summer to be fair and it’s something I was desperate to get done.
“I’ve played against the Club numerous times and it’s so, so hard playing against Leicester City. That’s something we need to take into the season. This place is incredible, I think it’s the best training ground I’ve ever seen in my life. It’s got absolutely everything so there’s no excuses for us going forward into the new campaign.
“Knowing a few of the lads here as well and how they speak of the Football Club, but looking at Leicester City as a whole, it’s such an exciting place to be. I’m massively excited about joining so it wasn’t a hard decision. As soon as I heard of the interest, it was something I wanted to pursue. I can’t wait to get started.”
'Over The Moon' - Coady's First LCFC Words
New Leicester City signing Conor Coady takes a tour of LCFC Training Ground, providing insight into his move to the Foxes.
Born in St Helens, Coady joined Liverpool’s academy in 2005 and made his senior debut for the club in a UEFA Europa League tie against Anzhi Makhachkala in November 2012.
His Premier League bow came at Fulham in May 2013 before spending the following campaign on loan at Sheffield United in League One, featuring on 50 occasions.
He then signed a permanent deal with Championship side Huddersfield Town in August 2014, where his impressive performances caught the eye of Wolves, who signed him the following summer.
An almost ever-present during his time at Molineux, Coady captained Wolves to promotion to the Premier League in 2017/18 and later helped them to qualify for European competition in 2018/19.
He played every minute of their UEFA Europa League campaign in 2019/20 and was subsequently named in UEFA’s Squad of the Season for the competition.
After a total of 317 appearances in a Wolves shirt, Coady signed a season-long loan deal with Everton last August, playing 25 games for the Toffees.
Internationally, he has represented England from Under-16 to Under-20 level, and made his senior debut against Denmark in September 2020.
He has since gone on to earn a further nine caps and was part of the Three Lions squad that reached the final of UEFA EURO 2020.
Coady will now link up with his new City team-mates ahead of the new Sky Bet Championship season, which begins at home to Coventry City on Sunday 6 August (12pm BST kick-off).
