Ritchie De Laet: Aston Villa sign Leicester City defender on three-year contract
Aston Villa have signed defender Ritchie De Laet from Leicester for an undisclosed fee.
The Belgian, 27, has moved to Villa Park on a three-year contract after the clubs agreed an undisclosed fee.
Villa boss Roberto di Matteo has now made seven signings since being appointed in early June.
De Laet, who spent the second half of last season helping Middlesbrough to win promotion from the Championship, made the last of his 129 Leicester appearances at Villa Park in January.
He scored against Villa for the Foxes when they came back from two down to win 3-2 at the King Power Stadium last September.
