Aleksandar Dragović, 26, joined Leicester City on a loan deal that runs to the end of the 2017/18 season on Deadline Day of the summer transfer window.

With 54 senior international caps to his name as well as 10 trophies from spells in the Austrian, Swiss and Ukrainian leagues, Dragović brings a wealth of experience to City’s defensive line.

A commanding and imposing authority in central defence, Dragović has steadily built a reputation as a tough-tackling defender across several European and international competitions.

Dragović’s career began in his native Austria with Wien in 2009 before his talents as a defender secured him a move to Swiss outfit FC Basel two years later, with whom he would win three league titles in consecutive seasons.

With FC Basel, Dragović’s performances helped them exceed expectations both domestically and in Europe, where they would reach the 2011/12 UEFA Europa League semi-finals, only to lose out to Chelsea over two legs.

A move to Ukrainian giants Dynamo Kyiv followed for the Austrian, and so did even more silverware as he helped his new team to the league title in back-to-back seasons with the club, while they also reached the UEFA Champions League Last-16, only to be eliminated by Manchester City.

Outstanding displays on big stages for both Dynamo Kyiv and Austria then persuaded German Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen to secure his services in the summer of 2016, where he would further enhance his reputation in one of Europe’s most competitive leagues.
