After completing a £23m move to the King Power Stadium, Adeyemi wished his friend success as he prepares for the challenges in England. The Bayern Munich youth product also thanked Daka for his friendship and professionalism during his stay in Austria. 

In his reply, Daka called Adeyemi a "young king" and promised him that their friendship will continue despite leaving Salzburg.

Last season, Daka notched 34 goals in 42 appearances, while Adeyemi bagged seven goals and contributed nine assists to help Salzburg win the Austrian league and Cup.

Up next for both players 

Adeyemi, who has a Nigerian father and a Romanian mother, is expected to be one of the leaders at Salzburg next season.

The highly-rated youngster, who has been tipped to deliver the goals and assists in the absence of Daka is a brilliant talent full of tricks.

For Daka, he will compete with Super Eagles striker Kelechi Iheanacho and Jamie Vardy for a spot in the Foxes attack.

Question: Which player would likely drop to the bench for Daka at Leicester City?
