Leeds United sign former Huddersfield Town player Peltier
Leeds United have completed the signing of Leicester City defender Lee Peltier.
The 25-year-old former Liverpool trainee joined for an undisclosed fee and has signed a three-year contract with the club.
The highly-rated right back is a long-time target of manager Neil Warnock and he opted for a move to Leeds despite interest from a number of clubs.
Peltier, who made four appearances for his first club Liverpool, has made over 200 career appearances during spells with Yeovil and Huddersfield before his move to Leicester in the summer of 2011.
Peltier was signed from Huddersfield for £750,000 last year by Leicester’s former manager Sven Goran Eriksson and made 47 appearances, first under the Swede and then Nigel Pearson.
Meanwhile, centre half Patrick Kisnorbo made his first pre-season appearance in the 3-1 friendly victory at Preston North End on Saturday.
After a dour opening half-hour, defender Tom Lees showed great skill to bring the ball down just inside the penalty area before swivelling and smashing home a volley.
Kisnorbo was replaced by Sam Byram before the interval, with Lees reverting to centre back alongside Jason Pearce.
John Mousinho equalised with a good strike from just inside the box after the break but Byram scored his first goal in a senior shirt on 66 minutes as he converted a Paul Green corner with a well-struck effort.
United added a third with ten minutes remaining when David Norris did well before Aidy White struck home.
