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

He is also eligible to play for England and Ivory Coast.

The young player was born while Kolo was playing for Arsenal.

And he joined Leicester from Celtic when he was under 14 years old after his father arrived as part of Brendan Rodgers’ training staff.

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

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

And Yassine should have no problem under pressure to follow in the footsteps of a famous parent.

That was after Leicester captain Kasper Schmeichel followed in his father Peter in the family business.

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

Their uncle Jermaine has made 195 Premier League appearances.

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