The highly rated 18-year-old has signed a four-year deal with the Foxes, having carved out an excellent reputation thanks to his performances for Chelsea’s Under-18s and Under-21s side in recent seasons.

Speaking to Foxes Hub, he said: “I’m really looking forward to making leaps and bounds in my career here at Leicester and working hard to help the team as much as I can.

“Obviously the history of the Club speaks for itself; there are great players here and I’m looking to soak up as much information as I can from the senior players, to learn from the staff and hopefully have a great season.”

Golding: So Excited To Be Here

New Leicester City midfielder Michael Golding speaks after signing for the Foxes.

The Kingston-born midfielder, who joined Chelsea at age of 12 from AFC Wimbledon, made his senior debut as a substitute in a January 2024 FA Cup Third Round tie at home to Preston.

Golding’s potential has also been recognised at international level, having been capped by England Under-16s, Under-17s and Under-18s. He captained the team at the UEFA Under-17s European Championships and would go on to play at the FIFA Under-17s World Cup in November 2023.

He will link up with his new team-mates at Seagrave on Monday as the Club’s teams return to pre-season training.
