Leeds United have signed Australian international Patrick Kisnorbo on a two-year deal.

The central defender opted to join United despite interest from a host of Championship clubs, and he put pen to paper at Thorp Arch on Wednesday morning.

The 28-year-old joins after a four-year stint at Leicester City, where he made 140 appearances. He was a virtual ever present for his first three seasons at the Walkers Stadium, but made just 10 appearances for the club last season.

United manager Simon Grayson was delighted to capture the Aussie star: "Patrick is an experienced defender who has played regular football in the Championship.

"He is strong, aggressive, and has leadership qualities. Having spoken to him, his desire and hunger is clear and he just the type of character I want at the club."

The defender started his career with South Melbourne before moving to Scotland with Hearts. He featured in the UEFA cup for the Tynecastle side, and moved south of the border two years later to join Leicester.

Kisnorbo, who was quick to speak of his desire to prove Leicester City were wrong not to extend his stay, brings a wealth of experience to the United squad.
