Leicester City have completed the signing of Poland defender Marcin Wasilewski on a one-year contract.

The 33-year-old was a free agent, having left Anderlecht in the summer after more than four years in Belgium.

Wasilewski, who trained with the club last week, began his career as a right-back but has been used as a centre-half for the past two seasons.

"I always dreamed of playing in England. I hope we can go to Premier League," he told BBC Radio Leicester.

"I used to play right-back, but now I play centre-back. I prefer centre-back.

"I played 60 games for the national team, but was not selected for three months when I didn't have a club. I hope I can come back to the national team."

Wasilewski is not available for Tuesday's home fixture against Blackburn Rovers in the Championship, but could feature in Saturday's game at Blackpool.
