Ghana defender John Pantsil will make his Leicester City debut on Saturday against Real Madrid after receiving his work permit, Ghanasoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.
The right-back had his permit cleared hours before Leicester’s 1-1 draw with Kettering Town at the Elgoods Brewery Arena on Tuesday. He finalized an agreement with the Foxes until 2014 last Friday.
The 30-year-old arrives at King Power Stadium after leaving Fulham at the end of his contract in June and becomes Sven-Goran Eriksson’s eighth signing this summer.
Pantsil has won nearly 70 caps for the Black Stars and has over 100 Premier League appearances to his name from spells with West Ham United and Fulham.
He made 91 appearances in all competitions during three years with the Cottagers and played every game during the club’s run to the UEFA Europa League Final in 2010.
