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
Monday 21 July 2014
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.
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.
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
