Wes Morgan: Completed his move to Leicester from Championship rivals Nottingham Forest
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.
