Leicester City have completed the loan signing of Alex Bruce from Ipswich on transfer deadline day for the remainder of the season.
The no-nonsense centre-half becomes Nigel Pearson's second signing of the transfer window following the veteran midfielder Nolberto Solano's move to East Midlands and the 25-year-old should be in the Foxes squad for Saturday's trip to Blackpool.
Bruce made over 100 appearances at Portman Road after joining Ipswich from Birmingham City in 2006 but has been out of favour since the Tractor Boys appointed Roy Keane as manager at the tail-end of last season.
The twice-capped Republic of Ireland international has made just one appearance this term, ironically against his new employers in a 1-1 draw in the Championship last month.
