LONDON (AP) — English Premier League champion Leicester signed Poland winger Bartosz Kapustka on Wednesday, adding more depth to its squad ahead of a first appearance in European competition in 16 years.

The 19-year-old Kapustka, who played at this year's European Championship, became Leicester's fifth signing of the offseason. Manager Claudio Ranieri is increasing competition and numbers in his squad, with Leicester also playing in the Champions League this season following its improbable Premier League title triumph.

Leicester said Kapustka has signed from Cracovia on a five-year deal, and didn't disclose a transfer fee.
