De Laet leaves Foxes for Villa


Ritchie De Laet has joined Championship side Aston Villa for an undisclosed fee.

The full-back made 129 appearances for Leicester since signing from Manchester United in the summer of 2012 and was part of the Foxes Premier League-winning squad last season.

He spent some time on loan with Middlesbrough last year and collected a medal for winning promotion on the same day that Leicester lifted the Premier League trophy.

The 27-year-ol has signed a three-year deal to move to Villa Park.

"I’m pleased to have brought Ritchie to the Club," manager Roberto Di Matteo told the club's official website.

“He is another player who not only has Championship experience but has also played a part in helping a team win promotion back to the Premier League.”

De Laet scored five times for the Foxes with his last coming against Aston Villa last season.
