Someone at Leicester City is clearly a big wrestling fan.
WWE superstars know how to make an entrance, so it’s perhaps no surprise the Foxes channelled The Undertaker for their latest transfer announcement.
On Sunday afternoon, Brendan Rodgers’ side teased some exciting news as they shared a cryptic snap of a trench coat and hat in the middle of the pitch at the King Power Stadium.
For wrestling fans, it was an obvious nod to The Undertaker, who placed his trademark outfit in the middle of the ring after his match against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33 in Orlando, Florida.
Half an hour later, Leicester made it official as they confirmed they have signed Turkish winger Cengiz Ünder on a one year loan deal.
The club’s Twitter account announced: ‘#lcfc have agreed terms with A.S. Roma for the loan of Turkish international @CengizUnder until the end of the season, subject to Premier League and international clearance! #ÜnderTaken’
The new arrival added: ‘Thanks to Brendan Rodgers, all the staff and management, for trusting me in this new chapter.
‘Also I’m grateful to my family and my agent who always supported me. I can’t wait to reflect my passion to the field.’
The ‘Taker reference wasn’t lost on WWE fans who loved the cheeky tribute, even if it comes months after the Dead Man called time on his legendary career.
The Phenom hinted that while you can never say never, he has nothing left to prove or accomplish, and his docu-series The Last Ride gave him chance to reflect.
He said: ‘I’m at a point, it’s time this cowboy really rides away. There’s nothing left for me to conquer or accomplish. The game has changed.
‘It’s time for new guys to come up. The time just seems right.
‘This documentary has helped me discover that and opened my eyes to the bigger picture and not judge myself as harshly these last few years.’
