Ryan Bertrand completes free transfer to Leicester from Southampton

Ryan Bertrand has signed a two-year deal with Leicester to become Brendan Rodgers’ third capture of the summer.

The former England defender was a free agent after allowing his contract at Southampton to expire and Leicester have won the race for the left-back, who turns 32 next month.

Rodgers identified Bertrand – who he coached at reserve and youth level at Chelsea – as the experienced full-back he needs to compete with youngster Luke Thomas.
