Leicester City has today confirmed the transfer of striker Matty Fryatt to fellow npower Championship side, Hull City.

Fryatt will join the Tigers in a three-and-a-half year deal, for an initial fee of £1.2million, eventually rising to £1.6million.

The former Walsall man will link up with ex-City boss, Nigel Pearson and will not be eligible to play against City in today's game, as part of the agreement between the two clubs.

The 24-year-old striker joined the Foxes in 2006, when then City boss, Craig Levein, swooped to bolster his strikeforce.


Fryatt went on to play a key part in City's League One title triumph in 2009, scoring 32 goals as the club returned to the Championship at the first time of asking.

He scored 13 goals last season, prior to sustaining a broken jaw against Doncaster Rovers and he has scored four goals this season.

Fryatt will be available for Hull City's trip to Portsmouth on Monday.
