Leeds United have signed former Leicester City central defender Patrick Kisnorbo on a two-year contract. The Australia international left the Walkers Stadium at the end of last season. He made 140 appearances in four years with the Foxes. The 28-year-old was named players' player of the year at Leicester after the 2006-07 season. "Leeds has a great tradition and history and I want to be part of a successful club," Kisnorbo told the club's official website. "Other clubs were interested but I saw more in this club than in the others. None of them appealed to me as much." "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," added Leeds manager Simon Grayson. Meanwhile, Ivory Coast striker Moussa Sanogo is on trial at Elland Road.
