Midfielder Sidnei Tavares has signed his first professional contract with Leicester City Football Club.

The 17-year-old joined City’s academy in 2010, at the age of nine, from local grassroots club Carib SSFC. 

The Portuguese youth international has made 16 league appearances for the Under-18s this season, scoring three goals, and has continued his progression for the Under-23s – playing twice in the Premier League 2 and the Premier League International Cup.

The promising youngster received a call-up to Portugal’s Under-18s squad in December last year and has gone on to earn two caps. 

His new deal keeps him at the Club until 2021.
