Marc Albrighton believes Leicester City's style of play will be perfect for him.
Albrighton sealed a move to the King Power Stadium after leaving Aston Villa and he cannnot wait to get started with his new club under manager Nigel Pearson.
"I looked at the style of play when I was making my decision," Albrighton told the Leicester Mercury.
"If I came here and he (Pearson) wasn't playing with wide men then it would be a bit of a strange decision.
"It is good for me knowing he plays that way. Obviously, he might need to change it a couple of times this season and use different formations against different sides but it is the way the manager likes to play."
The 24-year-old feels Leicester's young squad will have an excellent chance of making an impact on the Premier League.
"I think that is one of the main factors in why they did well last year," he said.
"They have a great togetherness and everyone is pulling together in what they are doing, they work for each other. That is going to be massive next season.
"That along with their ability and performances will be vital.
"Being young lads, I have played against a few of them at reserve level over the years.
"There is a massive amount of talent in this squad. There is a good mix in the squad and what you need in a squad.
"I am really looking forward to joining up with them and getting going."
