Leicester sign Polish international
Leicester City have signed Polish international Marcin Wasilewski on a free transfer.
The 33-year-old had been released by Belgian side Anderlecht and has signed for the Foxes on a one-year-deal, according to BBC Sport.
Wasilewski spent four years in Belgium, but now he is looking to spend at least one year in England with Leicester.
The defender spent the past week on trial and training with the club before signing on a free transfer.
Wasilewski told BBC Radio Leicester about his ambitions, I always dreamed of playing in England. I hope we can go to Premier League,”
The Polish defender also spoke about his international career, “I played 60 games for the national team, but was not selected for three months when I didn’t have a club. I hope I can come back to the national team.”
The Polish star is a full back, but for the past two seasons Wasilewski has been playing in central defence for Anderlecht.
Wasilewski also told BBC Radio Leicester about his position, “I used to play right-back, but now I play centre-back. I prefer centre-back.”
The defender was not available for Leicester’s two-one win over Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday.
Wasilewski could feature and is available for the Foxes game against Blackpool on Saturday at Bloomfield Road.
