He is currently due to return to Shakhtar on July 1.Tete, who will become the first Brazilian to play for Leicester, has six goals and three assists in 17 Ligue 1 appearances for Lyon this term and hopes to add some attacking impetus to a Leicester side still in the thick of the Premier League’s relegation battle.“I’m really happy to be here,” Tete said. “I’ve had a look at the pitch and the stadium, it’s beautiful and I can already imagine what it’ll be like with a lot of fans.“I hope to score a lot of goals and assists.

I hope they’ll all be happy to see me play. I’m happy to be a Fox.”Tete joined Shakhtar in February 2019 after breaking through with Gremio and memorably scored in the Ukrainian club’s 3-2 Champions League win over Real Madrid in October 2020.After Saturday’s 1-0 FA Cup win at Walsall, Leicester are next in action when they travel to Aston Villa next weekend.Join thought-provoking conversations, follow other Independent readers and see their repliesTete has joined Leicester on loan PA ArchiveWant to bookmark your favourite articles and stories to read or reference later?
