Sheff Utd have snapped up Lilian Nalis after the midfielder's exit from Leicester.Sheffield United have snapped up Lilian Nalis after the midfielder's exit from Leicester City.
The experienced Frenchman was released by The Foxes earlier this month as part of a cost-cutting exercise at The Walkers Stadium.
Nalis had spent two years with Leicester after joining the club from Chievo Verona and was a virtual ever-present this term.
After proving himself in The Championship he has wasted little time in fixing himself up with a new club after agreeing a deal with The Blades.
The 33-year-old has signed a 12-month contract at Bramall Lane, much to the delight of manager Neil Warnock, who will be typically active in the transfer market over the summer.
"I am delighted to announce that after extensive talks Lilian has agreed to join us for next season," Warnock told the club's official website.
"He is the type of midfielder I have been looking to sign since Stuart McCall stopped playing - the right age, the right temperament and I think he'll make us a better team."
