Leicester boss Pearson expecting big things from Albrighton

Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson is expecting big things from Marc Albrighton.

The former Aston Villa winger has joined the Foxes on a Bosman.

"Marc Albrighton is typical of a player who has been at a club for a long time," said Pearson.

"He has been at Villa since a young lad and is probably ready for a new challenge.

"There is no animosity between the two parties but, hopefully, we will get the best outcome because he is ready for the new challenge.

"I think he is a talented player and he will fit in with what we have here already very well."
