Leicester seal Dublin deal
Dion Dublin
Dublin was wanted by several clubs
Leicester have signed veteran striker Dion Dublin on a free transfer.

Dublin's first-team opportunities had become limited at Aston Villa and he was not offered a new deal.

Born in Leicester, he scored 15 goals in 2002-03 but last season was used chiefly as cover at the back for Olof Mellberg and Ronny Johnsen.

Leicester boss Micky Adams said: "Dion brings a wealth of experience and will be a big help in our bid to get back into the Premiership."

He added: "Dion is a model professional and provides opportunities for us in both attack and defence.

"He comes from a Leicester family and I am sure his arrival will make him a popular addition to the squad with our supporters."

Dublin is one of a select band of 11 players to score a century of Premiership goals.

The 35-year-old will join the Foxes on 1 July subject to him passing the statutory medical.
