The Foxes' home since 2002 had been owned by American pension fund company Teachers Insurance since the club came out of receivership soon after the ground opened.

But the club's owners have secured a deal for the 32,262-seater stadium that has been bought through their company K Power Holdings Co Ltd.

"It has always been part of our long-term vision to put the stadium back where it belongs, into the hands of the football club," vice-chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha told the club's official website.

"Purchasing the stadium was always a key element in this plan. The previous stadium owners have always been very co-operative.

"Whilst there are no immediate plans to alter the structure or design of the stadium site, the increased flexibility through direct ownership ensures that the football club can freely adjust to the changing needs of its supporter-base for the future."

The ground was built in 2002 at a cost of £37m to replace Filbert Street, but the club were soon plunged into administration.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
