Leicester City sign West Brom striker Roman Bednar

Roman Bednar

Leicester City boss Sven-Goran Eriksson has signed West Bromwich Albion striker Roman Bednar on loan until January.

Bednar, who was also wanted by Hull City, has fallen out of favour at the Hawthorns this term, making just three appearances in the Premier League.

The Czech Republic international, 27, scored 30 goals in 85 games for the Baggies having joined for £2.3m in June 2008 after a successful loan spell.

He becomes Eriksson's fifth signing since he took over in October.

Bednar, who played against the Foxes in West Brom's 4-1 Carling Cup victory last month, joins fellow loan signings Kyle Naughton, Curtis Davies and Greg Cunningham, along with permanent signing Darius Vassell.

The former Hearts forward will be available for Monday's local Championship derby against Nottingham Forest at the Walkers Stadium.

Bednar's arrival will add increase speculation that striker Matt Fryatt is set to leave.

Fryatt's chances have been limited since Nigel Pearson left the club in the summer and he has been linked with both Pearson's new club Hull and Reading.
