The talented 21-year-old joined the Foxes on a five-year deal earlier this month from Dinamo Zagreb and will now continue his development with Celtic as they aim to win a 50th league title.

The Croatian youth international, who made his City debut as a substitute in a 4-0 win over Fleetwood Town on Tuesday night, is regarded as an exciting talent following a string of impressive performances in Croatia.

He arrived at Leicester City after a successful 2017/18 campaign at Dinamo Zagreb in which he made 30 appearances for the Croatian side in all competitions, scoring four goals in a season that saw them clinch the league title.

The 6ft 4ins defender came through the Dinamo Zagreb academy and made his debut in July 2015. He won the league with the team the following season and has featured in three European campaigns – two in the UEFA Champions League.

He joins a Celtic side who sit second in the table after just three games and who are aiming to win their eighth consecutive league title. Benković could make his debut in Sunday’s Old Firm Derby against Rangers at Celtic Park.
