Esteban Cambiasso has completed a move to Premier League side Leicester City on a one-year deal, according to the Daily Mail.

The former Inter Milan midfielder arrives at the King Power Stadium on a free transfer after his release from the Serie A giants in the summer. The 34-year-old was linked over the summer with a move back to his homeland with River Plate as well as Premier League clubs Tottenham Crystal Palace and West Ham.

Cambiasso to the Premier League

The move ends a 10 year career at the San Siro where he made over 300 appearances, winning the Serie A, Coppa Italia and Champions League in his time there. Cambiasso also  made 52 appearances for Argentina, scoring five times, before retiring from International duty in 2011.

Leicester were promoted comfortably as winners of the Sky Bet Championship last season but they will need to call upon experience in the squad to avoid relegation in their first season in the Premier League.
