Sven swoops for Vassell

Leicester have signed former Aston Villa and Manchester City striker Darius Vassell on a deal until the end of next season.

The 30-year-old, who played under new Foxes manager Sven-Goran Eriksson at Eastlands and was handed his England debut by the Swede, was a free agent after leaving Turkish side Ankaragucu.

Vassell is the third signing Eriksson has made since he took over this month -- defenders Curtis Davies and Kyle Naughton joined on loan deals from Villa and Tottenham respectively.
