After training with the City squad yesterday, veteran Peruvian winger Nolberto Solano today signed a deal that will keep him at Leicester until the end of the season.
‘Nobby’ is one of Peru’s most famous sons… he has appeared on a postage stamp, and his wedding was televised live to the nation.
The 35 year old winger first came to England in 1998, when he signed for Newcastle. He then moved to Aston Villa, returned to Newcastle for a spell, and also played for West Ham before returning to Peru in 2009.
Nigel Pearson was assistant manager at St James Park when Solano played for the Magpies, who may be the first opposition for the Peruvian at Filbert Way.
