Leo Ulloa left Leicester City for Mexican club Pachuca just before the start of the new season. One of the heroes of the PL winning side two years ago has made a brilliant and fresh start at his new club.

He has so far scored two goals in seven league games, but the form in the cup is one to notice, scoring four in three games, with a great hat-trick to his name in the most recent.

Ulloa scored his first goal for his new club in a Copa MX game v. Celaya, and has since then continued to score pleasantly for his new club.

Ulloa (32) who is an Argentinian used to play for Arsenal in his home country. He had a loan spell last season at Brighton, scoring once in 10 league games with the Seagulls.

When Ulloa joined Leicester City in 2014 for a fee of £7million he became the foxes record transfer signing and the first to break the record once set by Ade Akinbiyi 14 years earlier, paying Wolverhampton £ 5.5millon.

Ulloa scored 18 goals in 86 league appearances for Leicester City, many of those games was as a sub and we all remember him being a regular replacement of Shinji Okazaki during those great days of 2015/16.

The Argentinian who declined a chance to play at international level for Chile, his grandfather was born in that country, has also had spells at Almeria and Castellon in Spain.

Leicester City officially confirmed that Leo Ulloa had joined Pachuca on a permanent contract, but that is with doubt, since a reliable website source of transfer information, sees the move as a loan, ending in June 2019.
