Leicester smash club transfer record to land Ulloa

City ended a long-running saga today, finally signing Brighton’s Argentinian striker Leonardo Ulloa for a club-record £8m on a four-year contract.

Leicester v Brighton, Sky Bet Championship, 8 April 2014,

The 28-year-old, who scored 16 goals for the Seagulls last season, could end up costing City up to £10m with various add-ons to the deal.
That would almost double the club’s previous record outlay of £5.5m spent by Peter Taylor on Ade Akinbiyi way back in the summer of 2000.

Next season’s No 23 for City will join up with Nigel Pearson’s squad for the imminent visit to Thailand and could feature in Sunday’s pre-season friendly against Everton at Bangkok’s Supachalasai Stadium.

David Nugent signs two-year deal with City

Leicester City have announced this afternoon that leading goalscorer David Nugent has signed a new two-year deal with the club.

Leicester v Queens Park Rangers, Sky Bet Championship, 19 April 2014,

The 29 year old has been leading scorer in all of his three seasons at Leicester, and last year’s total of 20 league goals was the highest since Gary Lineker was at the club.
The popular Liverpudlian told the LCFC official site: “I’m delighted to have signed for two years and I’m really looking forward to testing myself with the rest of the squad in the best league in the world.”

Nugent, who played in every league game for City last season,  has been out of the Premier League for four years, making appearances for Portsmouth and Burnley in 2009-10.

Nigel Pearson signs three year contract

Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson has signed a new three-year contract…

Leicester City celebrations, Sky Bet Championship, 5 May 2014,

The deal, which according to newspaper speculation could earn the City boss £2M a year, will see Pearson’s reign as City manager extend to June 2017.
His assistant managers Craig Shakespeare and Steve Walsh have also agreed new deals for the same period.

Vice Chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha told the official LCFC site: “From the first day I met Nigel, I knew he was the man to take us into the Premier League and I am delighted that he has been able to help us deliver that for our fans. 
He is a man of fine principles, a great leader and he believes in our long term vision for Leicester City, while his qualities in coaching, motivation and player development have been evident in our success on the pitch. Nigel is the perfect fit for our Football Club and his ambitions, both short and long-term, match ours.” 

np card The step up to the Premier League will be a huge challenge for Leicester City, but with two promotions and two play-off places under his belt in his interrupted reign at Leicester, Nigel Pearson has certainly earned the right to be there.

From Foxes to Desert Foxes…

Riyad Mahrez has just been named in Algeria’s starting XI for their Group H game against Belgium today….

Leicester v Queens Park Rangers, Sky Bet Championship, 19 April 2014,

Although the Leicester City winger only has two international appearances to his name he seems to have timed his run into the side very well.
He lines up alongside rumoured transfer target Madjid Bougherra.

Algeria: Mbolhi, Bougherra, Ghoulam, Halliche, Feghouli, Medjani, Bentaleb, Soudani, Taider, Mahrez, Mostefa…

Congratulations Riyad and the best of luck.
