Michael Morrison became Nigel Pearson's first signing at the Leicester City helm when he arrived from Cambridge United on a two-year deal.

The 20-year-old centre-half  progressed through the youth set-up at the Abbey Stadium, making his debut for the Reserves at the age of just 15 - the youngest ever Cambridge United player to do so.

Manager Nigel Pearson said: "Michael is a young, promising player and I am delighted to have him on board.

"He's played over 100 games for Cambridge, which at just 20 years of age is some achievement.

"He comes with some outstanding recommendations and I am looking forward to working with him."

He signed his first professional contract and made his Conference debut at the age of 17 and has been an almost ever present for the U's since - making a total of 115 appearances.

The player was courted by a number of higher-level clubs during his time with Cambridge - training with the likes of Everton, Preston, Newcastle United, Watford and Chelsea.

He was twice named Young Player of the Year - most recently at the end of the 2007-08 campaign.

He played for Cambridge in their 2-1 defeat at Championship Wolves in January, 2008 and made a smooth step up to League One. Morrison made his debut against MK Dons on the opening day of the 2008-2009 season.
