Aston Villa have completed the signing of Leicester City defender Ritchie de Laet on a three-year deal.
De Laet has become Roberto di Matteo’s seventh signing of the season, joining Villa in a deal understood to be worth around £2.5million.
The 27-year-old made 12 Premier League appearances for Leicester last term, scoring against Villa and earning a title winner’s medal.
The former Manchester United man also played 10 times on loan at Middlesbrough last term, helping the side win promotion on the same day he picked up his Premier League medal.
