Leicester City's latest signing Marc Albrighton believes that the move to King Power Stadium will help in his improvement as a player.

The former Aston Villa winger, who signed a four-year deal with the newly promoted Premier League side, is manager Nigel Pearson’s third signing of the summer and is expected to bring along with him much experience of playing at the top level.

The 24-year-old played 104 matches between 2008 and 2014, managing to score a total of nine goals.

Speaking about his choice of the Foxes from among various other suitors, the youngster said that he was confident that this move would be best for his career.


"It’s a move that I’m looking forward to as it will help me better myself, not just come here and stay at the same level. I’m sure with the players around me, as well as the players and coaching staff, it will improve me as a player. It’s really exciting for me", the former Wigan Athletic player told his new club's official site.

"My main asset is to get half a yard and put a cross in, so I’m sure with the strikers that we’ve got here, they’ll definitely be on the end of them. I like to be positive, I like to get at a player and I want to keep developing."
