Leicester have completed the signing of Wes Morgan from Nottingham Forest for an undisclosed fee.
Sky Sports revealed earlier on Monday that the centre-back had agreed personal terms with the Foxes and passed a medical.
Leicester have now confirmed that Morgan has joined the club on a deal until the summer of 2014 to become Niger Pearson's third new recruit of the January window after Danny Drinkwater and Nathan Delfouneso.
It marks the start of a new challenge for Morgan, who has been with Forest for his entire career apart from a brief loan spell with Kidderminster as a youngster.
He will now link up with the Leicester squad on Tuesday ahead of Wednesday night's Championship game against Middlesbrough.
