Cadamarteri earns contract with Leicester City

December 28, 2006

Leicester have signed former Everton striker Danny Cadamarteri.

The 27-year-old has been training with the club for two weeks and has done enough to earn himself a deal until the end of the season.

Foxes manager Rob Kelly told the club's official website: 'Danny is a player who I have followed since he was a youngster at Everton. He is a forward and he has got pace.

'Danny has had a little spell out of the game and he is hungry. He's 27 now and has got a young family. I am sure he would admit himself that he hasn't fully realised his potential.'

Cadamarteri, who has also played for Bradford, Leeds and Sheffield United, made two appearances for Grays in the Conference this month after completing a six-month drugs ban.
