Leicester City can confirm this afternoon that they have completed the signing of central defender Sean St Ledger. St Ledger arrives from Preston North End after the club were relegated to League One last season, it is reported that the 26 year old has signed a three year deal with the Foxes.
St Ledger played over 180 times for Preston North End over a span of six years, in that time Middlesbrough secured his services on a loan deal in the year 2009, he now leaves Preston North End behind for pastures new with Leicester City.
St Ledger is also an highly rated and established Republic Of Ireland international, he has played nearly 20 games for his country and has scored against Italy at Croke Park.
Manager Sven Goran Eriksson has had this to say on his fourth summer signing, “Sean is a very good defender and has proven this in league football, but also on the international stage for the Republic of Ireland”
Who will be next to join the Foxes after Sean St Ledger? Earlier today we discovered that Craig Mackail-Smith rejected Leicester City and West Ham for newly promoted Brighton. Will Sven Goran Eriksson go in search for Nicky Maynard again, or will David Nugent eventually complete his rumoured move to the Walkers Stadium in the next couple of days?
