LEICESTER CITY are keeping it in the family after signing first team coach Kolo Toure’s son Yassine.

The teen has joined on a two-year scholarship.

Leicester have signed Yassine Toure on a two-year scholarship for their Under-18s
Yassine is the son of Leicester coach and former top defender Kolo Toure

But unlike his defender father, Yassine is a right-winger who wears the number seven shirt.

He also qualifies to play for England and the Ivory Coast.

The youngster was born while Kolo was playing for Arsenal.

And he joined Leicester from Celtic as an under-14 after his dad arrived as part of Brendan Rodgers’ coaching staff.

In December, he was offered a two-year scholarship with the club.

That means he will play for City’s under-18s until the end of the 2023-24 season.

And Yassine should have no problem living up to the pressure of following in the footsteps of a famous parent.

That’s after Leicester skipper Kasper Schmeichel followed his dad Peter in the family business.

Meanwhile, Leicester also have brothers Terrell and Kian Pennant in their youth ranks.

Their uncle Jermaine made 195 Premier League appearances.

And he also played for Liverpool in the 2007 Champions’ League final.
