Leicester City's summer spending spree shows no sign of abating after John Pantsil became Sven Goran Eriksson's EIGHTH signing of the summer, following a visit to the King Power Stadium on Wednesday.


Pantsil, who was available on a free transfer after his contract at Fulham expired in June, follows Paul Konchesky, Matt Mills, David Nugent, Kasper Schmeichel, Neil Danns, Sean St. Ledger, and Lee Peltier in joining the Foxes revolution.

He signs a three-year contract with Leicester and says the fight to bring the club to the Barclays Premier League will be the biggest challenge of his career.


"I see this as the biggest challenge of my career so far and, together with my new team-mates, we will fight to make Leicester City climb to the top," he said.


The Ghanaian international, who has also played at West Ham before signing for Fulham in 2008, said that the project taking place at City matches his ambitions.



He also spoke highly of the idea of playing for former England manager Eriksson, saying that it was one of the factors in choosing the Npower Championship side ahead of some of the other clubs that had made offers.


"I visited the club on Wednesday, met the coach and some of the club officials and I am very happy with what I saw," Pantsil said.


"The club has got a lot of ambition to succeed at a high level with their fantastic fans and that is why I chose to join them despite some other offers.


"The fact that they have coach Eriksson also says a lot about the ambitions of the club and I am obviously delighted to join in this noble cause."
