Claudio Ranieri has hailed the addition of Daniel Amartey to his squad as he believes the versatility of the Ghana international will be vital for the Foxes as they head into the second half of the Premier League.

Amartey completed a move to the King Power Stadium last week, enhancing the options available at Ranieri’s disposal.

The former Inter Allies defender is adept at playing at center back, right back and central midfield.

Ranieri believes these assets will make Amartey an important addition to his squad

“It’s good to have one player that can permit me to change something during the match,” Ranieri told Leicester’s official website.

“He’s a good player, strong, with good quality, a hard worker and he has our spirit.

“He is a strong man and he can play in a lot of positions. He can play centre-back, right-back, central midfield and right midfield.

“It’s important for me to have another very good young player.”

Amartey’s debut could come next week Tuesday when the Foxes host Liverpool.
