Premiership new-boys Leicester City have agreed to sign former England centre-half Matthew Upson on a one-year deal after he rejected a new contract with Brighton.

The 35 year old told the club website: "I obviously played against Leicester last season and I liked the way they played and the intensity that they had. It's an opportunity to play in the Premier League again, which I have been striving to do since I've been in the Championship.

"I enjoyed last season and had a great time at Brighton, but it's too good an opportunity to turn down."
