Football: Veteran Phillips joins Leicester

Former England striker Kevin Phillips has joined Leicester City on loan until the end of the season, the English second-tier club announced on Wednesday. Phillips, 40, scored a winning penalty for Crystal Palace in the Championship play-off final against Watford last season, but he was released by Palace last weekend after making only four league appearances. "The opportunity to sign a player of Kevin's experience and know-how doesn't come along too often, so I'm delighted that we've been able to add him to our squad," said Leicester manager Nigel Pearson.

Phillips was making his second appearance for Palace after joining the south London team from Blackpool last month and he picked the perfect venue to get off the mark as he returned to Watford almost 16 years after leaving Vicarage Road.
