St Ledger signs up with Leicester

SEAN ST LEDGER yesterday signed a three-year contract with Leicester City after the Foxes agreed an undisclosed fee with relegated Preston North End for the 26-year-old centre-half.

The move offers St Ledger the opportunity to continue playing in the Championship.

The Swede is delighted to have signed the 18-times capped Irish international.

"Sean is a very good defender and I believe he will make a positive impact with our team," said Eriksson.

Reid determined to make point at Forest

ANDY REID is determined to get his career back on track next season after rejoining Nottingham Forest -- the club where he started his professional career.

"I've played Premier League for the last seven years and I've done well. I feel I've been unlucky with injuries and last season I made a bad decision in going to Blackpool," he said.

"I have points to prove to myself, to the manager, my team-mates and the fans -- but not to anybody outside of the club."
