Who should be Leicester's first choice left-back?
His move comes after Christian Fuchs, who won the Premier League title during his time with Leicester, saw his contract expire.
Bertrand will provide competition for promising full-back Luke Thomas. The 20-year-old made 25 appearances last term and rounded off a memorable campaign by starting the FA Cup final triumph over Chelsea.
While Leicester supporters would like to see Thomas develop and become an academy product who nails down a regular spot in Rodgers’ starting line-up, Howey insists beating other sides to free agent Bertrand is a good piece of business.
Speaking exclusively to TIF, former Leicester star Howey said: “Thomas and Bertrand will be vying for a position.
“It’s vitally important to have competition in every position. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a young lad or somebody with experience.
“Both will want to play so they will have to up their game. Bertrand will certainly be a good signing for the club.”
