Leicester City have confirmed that Zak Whitbread has become Nigel Pearson’s fifth signing of the summer.

The 28 year old centre half has joined on until June 2014 and brings with him a whole load of experience.

Speaking to Pearson said.

‘Zak is a player of great quality that will add a huge amount of experience to the squad, I’m delighted we have been able to bring him here. He will be a great character to have as part of our group, he knows exactly what it takes to get out of this division.’

Whitbread could make his debut in tonight’s friendly against Hinckley.
