Leicester City have beaten off overseas competition to secure the signing of former striker Paul Dickov.

The Scot, 35, seemed to have rejected a move back to the Foxes, when he went to talk to Canadian side Toronto FC, but he has now signed a two-year contract.

Manager Nigel Pearson told the club website: "Paul has tremendous spirit and I'm delighted to bring him here.

"He will give us everything and I'm sure he will be a favourite with the fans here once again."

Dickov was released by Manchester City this summer and was also a target of Championship side Blackpool, where he had a spell on loan last season.

The former Scotland international previously played for Leicester between 2002 and 2004, scoring 37 goals in 89 games.
