Championship new-boys Leicester City have prised Doncaster Rovers midfielder Richie Wellens away from the Keepmoat Stadium. The Foxes have been linked with the 29-year-old midfielder for much of the season but finally have landed their man for an undisclosed fee, thought to be in the region of £1.2million. Despite also signing Wayne Brown, Jack Hobbs, Astrit Adjarevic, Robbie Neilson, Chris Weale and Dany N'Guessan this summer, manager Nigel Pearson has not ruled out the prospect of more new arrivals before the season starts in just over four weeks' time. He told the Leicester Mercury: "I don't know if there'll be one or two coming in and there might be one or two going. "If we add more, that will be great. If we don't, we go with the squad we have, which is more than capable. "I can't see why we can't do well and surprise a few people. "Promotion is always an aim but, if you look at expectation, we're in a slightly different situation. That doesn't mean you can lower your sights."
