No 13 söyöncü maybe ?— John Clyde (@Clyde692) August 14, 2018
However, the Foxes' official website does acknowledge the 22-year-old's absence, where it is made clear that Söyüncü's squad number is to be confirmed.
The defender's transfer from Freiburg to Leicester was subject to him gaining a work permit, although his transfer fee, wages and role as a first team regular in the Bundesliga are all factors that should see him awarded one.
Once his transfer is completed, Söyüncü will become only the second Turk to play for the club, following in Muzzi Izzet's footsteps.
Leicester will play their first home game of the new Premier League season this Saturday, when they welcome a new look Wolves side to the King Power stadium.
