Germany 2014 World Cup reserve keeper Ron-Robert Zieler has joined English Premier League champions Leicester City from Bundesliga side Hannover 96.
Leicester City’s official website confirmed on Friday that the 27-year-old shot stopper joins for an undisclosed fee and has put pen-to-paper on a four-year deal to keep him at King Power Stadium until 2020.
Zieler boasts more than 200 appearances for Hannover in Germany, as well as in the Europa League.
The Cologne-born ‘keeper who has six Germany caps to his name, having made his debut in 2011, was a former Manchester United academy player after joining in 2005.
While at Manchester United academy, Zieler played alongside current City players Danny Drinkwater, Matty James, Danny Simpson and Ritchie De Laet.
Despite not appearing for the first team at Old Trafford, the goalkeeper did take in a two-game loan spell with Northampton Town during the 2008/09 League 1 campaign before eventually joining Hannover on a free transfer in the summer of 2010.
Zieler will join up with his Foxes team-mates when they return to training in July, ahead of pre-season schedule which includes International Champions Cup matches against Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Celtic.
