Leicester City transfer news: Completed summer deals, including Marc Albrighton and Leonardo Ulloa

A look at the players who have arrived at the King Power Stadium this summer and those who have departed

Leicester City dominated the Championship last season, reaching 102 points and gaining automatic promotion as champions.

As with any newly promoted club, their first aim will be to make sure of their safety at the top level but if they can keep their form from last season going, they may surprise a few this year.

COMPLETED TRANSFERS

Matthew Upson - Free from Brighton

Former Arsenal, West Ham and Birmingham centre-back, Upson will bring plenty of Premier League experience to the newly promoted Foxes. The 35-year-old had a good season on the south coast with Brighton, playing 43 league games, but the chance to return to the top flight was too good to pass up.

Marc Albrighton - Free from Aston Villa

The 24-year-old's career at Villa Park had started to go nowhere over recent years and this could be the change Albrighton needs to recapture his good form of a few years ago. The winger has failed to score in his past two seasons and was shipped out on a short term loan to Wigan last year.

Ben Hamer - Free from Charlton

The goalkeeper started his career in the Premier League with Reading although never played in the top flight. Now he has signed for Leicester following three decent seasons with Charlton. The 26-year-old stopper should be able cover for Kasper Schmeichel, should Leicester keep hold of their current number one, that is.

Jack Barmby - Free from Manchester United

The 19-year-old striker scored five goals in 17 games in a loan spell with Hartlepool last season. Son of England midfielder Nick, Jack Barmby is a versatile front man who has been capped by England's Under 19s four times.

Leonardo Ulloa - £8m from Brighton & Hove Albion

The Argentinian striker joined for a club-record £8m. He scored on his Premier League debut for the Foxes, in the 2-2 draw with Everton.

EXITS

Lloyd Dyer - Free to Watford

Neil Danns - Free to Bolton

Zak Whitbread - Free to Derby

Sean St Ledger, Marko Futacs - Released

Paul Gallagher - Loan to Preston

Ben Nugent - Loan to Yeovil

Ben Frempah - Free to Ross County

Kevin Phillips - Retired
