Hull City have signed midfield pair James Harper and Nolberto Solano after training with the club.
Harper, 29, was released by Sheffield United at the end of the season and has penned a two-year deal, while veteran Solano has agreed a one-year contract.
The 35-year-old former Newcastle, Aston Villa and West Ham winger follows new Tigers manager Nigel Pearson to the KC Stadium, having worked under him at Leicester.
Peru international Solano only signed a six-month deal with the Foxes back in May but has opted to make the move to Leicester's Championship rivals.
Harper, meanwhile, spent nine years at Reading between 2001 and 2010, and after a short spell with the Blades, now moves on to pastures new.
Hull's head of football operations Adam Pearson said: "We've got both players on really good, tight deals.
"Nobby (Solano) will be on a year and James on two years on wages that don't dent the finances too much.
"Those deals will be done this week and we're happy to have got two quality players in."
The players are Nigel Pearson's first summer signings and their incentivised contracts will start from 1st August.
