Leicester City has appointed a new head of senior recruitment in person of Eduardo Macia replacing Steve Walsh that left to Everton FC.
The announcement was made on the club’s official website and the Spaniard is to resume his new appointment with immediate effect.
Macia is no stranger to Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri as they both worked together in La Liga at Valencia.
“Eduardo’s appointment follows an extensive process undertaken by the football club,” Leicester’s Director of Football Jon Rudkin said in a statement.
“His expertise and network of contacts will add considerable strength to our existing team of recruitment staff, whose skill and diligence contributed greatly to a successful summer transfer window.”
Macia has also worked with Greek champions Olympiakos, Spanish side Real Betis and Italian club Fiorentina.
