Cape Town - Spanish centre-back Luis Hernandez says he is settling in well at the 2015/16 Premier League champions and can't wait to make his debut for the Foxes.
The 27-year-old Spaniard held his first training session with the Leicester squad on Friday after joining the club on a four-year contract last month.
And the former Sporting Gijon player has been impressed by the family atmosphere at the King Power Stadium.
"When I spoke with Claudio [Ranieri], he told me that Leicester is like a family," Hernandez told Foxes Player HD.
"Now, I want to play my first game and train with all the players, so it's good for me.
"I've had my first day here now and I'm really happy to have met my new team-mates. It's a good group, like a little family, and I'm really happy to be here.
"The first day back is not easy, but it's good. The training ground is good for all the players, so I'm happy with it and I feel good.
"The welcome from my team-mates is good. They're good players and good people and I think this is important. When you're at a big club and there's great people, all is good.
"I think this is the reality of this club - good people and good players. This club is growing and I feel good here."
Hernandez is a former Real Madrid youth player, and represent Los Blancos' C and B teams prior to joining Sporting Gijon's B side in 2012. He made his first-team debut later that same year, eventually racking up 136 appearances before sealing his move to Leicester on a free transfer towards the end of June.
