Leicester seal Aleksandar Dragovic loan signing from Bayer Leverkusen

Leicester have signed defender Aleksandar Dragovic from Bayer Leverkusen on a season-long loan.

Dragovic, currently on international duty with Austria, has won 54 caps for his country.

He has won 10 trophies across his career during spells in the Austrian, Swiss and Ukrainian leagues with Austria Vienna, Basel and Dynamo Kiev respectively.

A Leicester statement read: "The 26-year-old heads to King Power Stadium on a deal that runs to the end of the 2017-18 season and is set to join up with his new teammates after concluding international duty with Austria next week."

Leicester seem set to lose midfielder Danny Drinkwater to Chelsea late on deadline day but moves for Riyad Mahrez and Demarai Gray appear to have failed to materialise.

Earlier on Friday, Leicester sent midfielder Nampalys Mendy out on loan to former club Nice after just one season at the club.
