Futacs is fourth arrival at King Power Stadium

Hungarian forward Marko Futacs has become Nigel Pearson's fourth signing of the season and is set to be unveiled as a Leicester City player on Monday.

The 22-year-old striker has agreed personal terms with the club, according to the Leicester Mercury, and will be announced as the Foxes' latest signing once his registration is completed with the Football League.

At 6'5", Futacs far exceeds the height of any other player on City's books and he will bolster the Foxes' attacking options, following the departure of Steve Howard who joined Hartlepool United yesterday, having been released by Leicester at the end of the season.

Meanwhile, City have offered a trial to former Dundee United goalkeeper Dusan Pernis. The Foxes have only three goalkeepers on their books at present following the departure of Chris Weale and Pearson is keen to offer some competition to number one Kasper Schmeichel.
