Leicester clinch deal for Chelsea keeper Schwarzer

Leicester City have completed the signing of Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer.

The 42-year-old will move on a free from the Blues - ending his 18 months service at the club.

Schwarzer's arrival to the King Power Stadium will be a welcome addition to boss Nigel Pearson as his side fight relegation.

Current first-choice goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel is currently out injured - having suffered a broken metatarsal during a training session in December.

The Danish international's sustained stress fracture has seen Ben Hamer play in his absence - with the Foxes having conceded seven goals in five games since.
