Peltier to be unveiled as Foxes player Wednesday

Quick: New signing Lee Peltier
Leicester City have agreed terms with the club's first signing of the 2011 summer transfer window.

Exciting full-back Lee Peltier has joined the Foxes on a three-year deal for an undisclosed sum. The 24-year-old, who plays on the right wing, will be registered as a Leicester City player tomorrow morning after the club agreed his transfer with Huddersfield Town yesterday, for an undisclosed fee.

Peltier has lit-up League One after two impressive seasons with the Terriers, his dynamic skill and pace marking him out as a hot prospect for the future. The full-back began his career as a graduate of Liverpool's academy before spells at Hull City and Yeovil Town. Moving to the Galpharm Stadium eighteen months ago, Peltier picked-up the club's Player's Player of the Year award last season and again impressed this term - enough for Sven Goran Eriksson to bid a reported £750,000 for the Englishman.
