French winger Dany N’Guessan has finally left Lincoln City, agreeing a three year deal with Leicester City. He joins Adrian Patulea and Lee Beevers in leaving Sincil Bank this week.

The Imps will be due compensation as N’Guessan is under 24. His former club Glasgow Rangers will also take a third of any fee.

It was expected that the Frenchman would leave having turned down a new contract with the Imps. Leicester boss Nigel Pearson was delighted with the signing, saying:

“Dany is an extremely exciting prospect. He impressed us during our home game against Lincoln in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy last season and is a versatile and talented player.

“We are certain that the addition of Dany will heighten competition for places and he has the potential to improve.

“He is an attacking player by nature, can play on the left, right or up front, or even just behind the strikers.”

Imps manager Peter Jackson has moved quickly to replace left back Lee Beevers, who has joined League One side Colchester United, by signing the highly rated Nottingham Forest left back Joe Heath on a six-month loan.

The former Manchester United youngster played 12 games last season in the Championship with Forest and Jackson says he is pleased with the deal:

“Joe is a young, keen and enthusiastic player and I’m delighted that I’ve been able to bring him to the club. He had experience at Championship level last season and played in some big games for Forest so he’s certainly got something about him and is a highly rated full back.”

Heath will join his new team mates at the weekend before the squad fly to Germany for a pre-season tour.
