Leeds United have signed centre-back Patrick Kisnorbo on a two-year deal.

The 28-year-old Australia international left Leicester City at the end of last season, where he made 140 appearances in four years.

"Leeds has a great tradition and history and I want to be part of a successful club," Kisnorbo told the club's website.

"Other clubs were interested but I saw more in this club than in the others. None of them appealed to me as much."

Kisnorbo will join up with international team-mate Neil Kilkenny at Elland Road, while he also played with Ian Miller at Leicester.

Manager Simon Grayson said: "He is strong, aggressive, and has leadership qualities. Having spoken to him, his desire and hunger is clear and he just the type of character I want at the club."
