Leicester have agreed to sign defender John Pantsil subject to obtaining a work permit.

The 30-year-old Ghanaian has signed a contract with the Foxes until 2014 after leaving Fulham in June.

City manager Sven-Goran Eriksson, who has now recruited eight new players this summer, told "It's very good that a player of John's experience and quality wants to join us at Leicester."

Pantsil has 68 caps for the Black Stars and over 100 Premier League appearances from spells at West Ham and Fulham.

Eriksson added: "He is another established Premier League footballer with a lot of caps at international level. He's very athletic, strong, and I'm sure he will do very well for us.

"If we lacked experience in defence last season, we have certainly addressed that with the players we have brought in this summer."
