Marko Futacs made a total of 30 appearances for Portsmouth

Leicester have completed the signing of Portsmouth striker Marko Futacs.

The 22-year-old Hungarian has signed a two-year contract with the Foxes, who must pay a compensation fee, and becomes manager Nigel Pearson's fourth summer signing.

"Marko has only been in English football for a year but has shown all of the physical and mental attributes to be successful at this level and we're delighted to have added him to the squad," Pearson told Leicester's official website.

"He's another player we faced considerable competition to sign, which only serves to highlight how impressively he performed for Portsmouth last season.

"His height naturally offers some variety to our attacking options, but he is a very gifted player whose technical strengths should not be underestimated."

Futacs left home city Budapest to join French club AS Nancy when he was 16 and moved on to German club Werder Bremen in 2009.

He joined Portsmouth last August and made a total of 30 appearances for Pompey, scoring five goals.
