Leicester City chairman Milan Mandaric is hopeful Marco Ferreira will provide his club with the 'missing dimension'.
The Portuguese winger recently joined the Foxes until the end of 2007 after agreeing a loan move from Benfica.
Mandaric is optimistic Ferreira, who has made four appearances for Portugal, will provide Leicester with an additional offensive edge.
"We have been searching long and hard for a wide player," Mandaric told Leicester's official website.
"We hope that Marco will bring the dimension that we have been missing."
Ferreira will be available for Leicester's first Championship fixture after the international break, which is against Oueens Park Rangers on 15th September.
Fellow Leicester loan signing Adda Djeziri will join Ferreira in the Foxes ranks after the 18-year-old Danish forward, who spent most of last year on loan with Rangers, agreed a temporary move from BK Frem.
