Leicester centre-back Wayne Brown has made his loan move from Hull permanent by signing a two-year contract.

Brown initially joined the Foxes in January until the end of the season and has played eight games in their charge to the League One title.

The 31-year-old, who has joined for an undisclosed fee, told the club website he was "delighted".

"Leicester are a big club with an ambitious chairman, a good manager and a massive fan base," he added.

"There is a really good attitude here and we all want to continue to move forward next season."

Brown began his career at Ipswich Town and has also had stints at Colchester, Watford, QPR and Wimbledon.
