Leicester Seal Ulloa Deal

Leicester Seal Ulloa Deal

After days of speculation, Leicester City have now completed the signing of former Brighton and Hove Albion striker Leonardo Ulloa.

Leo, turns 28 this weekend, and has joined us for an undisclosed fee but it is believed to be in excess of £7million and therefore our new record transfer.

He moves to us on a four year deal and has been handed the No 23 shirt for the season.

Having now signed the paperwork, he will join the squad for their visit to Thailand and could make his club debut in the game against Everton at Bangkok's Supachalasai Stadium.

In his eighteen months in the country since moving to Brighton from Almeria, he has made 58 appearances and scored 26 times across all competitions.

Last season, as Brighton made the play offs again, Ulloa scored 16 times for them.

Speaking to lcfc.com following the announcement, manager Nigel Pearson said.

'We identified Leo as a player that could help us move forward quite some time ago. He compliments the forwards we already have very well and his attributes broaden the options available to us, which will be important this season. I'm delighted we've been able to add him to the squad.'
