Peter Canero believes he can help Leicester avoid relegation as he prepares to complete his £250,000 move from Kilmarnock.
Canero has played for Scotland Under-21s
The English Premiership club expect to formerly confirm his capture on a two-and-a-half-year deal on Tuesday.
Scotland Under-21 winger Canero told his new club's website: "Leicester are a big team and, while they may be in the bottom three at the moment, I am sure we can get out it.
"I just hope I can help them do it."
There had been suggestions that Celtic had made a late bid to steal Canero from Leicester's grasp, although the Glasgow club's boss, Martin O'Neill, denied making any moves.
"Leicester made it clear they wanted me and that is why I am delighted to be joining them," said Canero.
"Other clubs had shown some interest, wanting me to sign a pre-contract, and I had been offered a new three-year contract by Kilmarnock, but I had decided the time was right to make a move and Leicester came in with the right offer."
Canero had been given a deadline by Foxes manager Micky Adams after asking for time to consult his father about the move.
Adams said: "He's just 23 and my thoughts are we would try and get a couple of younger players into the squad for the benefit of the club in future years.
"We made him an offer, a decent offer and he had a lot to think about.
"If he didn't agree then we would have moved on."
