The 33-year-old was a free agent, which has allowed him to move outside the transfer window, and he has agreed an initial one-year deal at the King Power Stadium.

Wasilewski, who has over 60 caps for Poland, left Anderlecht in the summer after a six-year spell with the Belgian giants.

"I'm really pleased to be joining Leicester City. I have always dreamed of playing in England so to sign for Leicester is fantastic for me," he told Leicester's website.

Wasilewski is not available to face Blackburn on Tuesday, but he could feature in their trip to Blackpool at the weekend.

This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
