Beckford: Called time on his Everton career and joined Leicester

As revealed by skysports.com earlier on transfer deadline day, the Foxes have finally landed their man in a £3million switch after having a bid for Beckford rejected earlier this month.

The big-spending Championship outfit have now confirmed the deal and Beckford becomes Sven Goran Eriksson's 12th signing of the summer.

The 27-year-old will train with his new team-mates on Thursday and could be in line for his Foxes debut at Barnsley on 10th September.
