Vassell reunited with Eriksson at Leicester
Thursday 21 October 2010
Leicester City have signed former Aston Villa and Manchester City striker Darius Vassell until the end of next season.
The 30-year-old, who played under new Foxes manager Sven Goran Eriksson during his time at Eastlands and was handed his England debut by the Swede in 2002, was a free agent after leaving Turkish side Ankaragucu.
Vassell is the third signing Eriksson has made since he took over at the Championship club earlier this month, having already recruited defenders Curtis Davies and Kyle Naughton on loan deals from Villa and Tottenham respectively. Eriksson is also reported to be interested in Blackburn striker Jason Roberts, who is out of favour at Ewood Park.
