Leicester City have announced the eye-catching signing of former Inter Milan and Argentina midfielder Esteban Cambiasso, with the experienced central midfield warhorse penning a one-year deal at the King Power Stadium.


The Foxes have started the 2014/15 campaign with just one point from two matches, but manager Nigel Pearson will have been hugely encouraged by his side’s displays in their opening day draw with Everton and defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, a game in which Leicester caused genuine issues for the early Premier League pacesetters and title favourites.

The 34 year-old was released by Serie A giants Inter at the end of last season after ten years of sterling service at the San Siro, having previously played for Independiente, River Plate and Real Madrid.

He picked up 52 caps for Argentina, with his international career most well remembered for the stunning team goal against Serbia at the 2006 World Cup that was finished off by Cambiasso.

Pearson will be hoping that he can add experience and solidity to a City midfielder that has suffered from injuries to key players such as Danny Drinkwater early on in the season, although both Dean Hammond and Andy King have deputised effectively, meaning that the path to the team may not be simple for Cambiasso.
