Leicester City have signed Japan international Yuka Momiki from Swedish top-flight side Linköping on an 18-month contract.

The US-born forward has played over 40 times for Japan and played 117 senior games for Nippon TV Beleza, before joining American side OL Reign and then spending three years at Linköping.

The 27-year-old told LCFC.com: “I am so excited to be here and want to play as soon as possible. I want the fans to see how happy I am to be here, and I can’t wait to see everyone. England is the best country to play football in and this has always been my dream.

“The manager has passion and a vision for this project and that’s why I came here. The club has specific goals and plans, and everyone is following that philosophy.”
