Charlton Athletic goalkeeper Ben Hamer has agreed a four-year deal with newly-promoted Leicester City.

Hamer, 26, will sign his contract with Barclays Premier League newcomers Leicester when his current Charlton deal expires next month.

Leicester's current number one Kasper Schmeichel is expected to sign a new four-year deal with Leicester by the end of this week.

Former Reading goalkeeper Hamer played a key role in Charlton's promotion in 2012 - he kept 18 clean sheets in 42 appearances - and kept a further nine clean sheets during the 2012/13 campaign.

Hamer showcased his fine form for the Addicks after battling back from injury in the season just gone when he was named FA Cup player of the round in March after his side's 2-1 fifth-round win at Sheffield Wednesday.

He joined Charlton in the summer of 2011 and made a total of 121 appearances for the Addicks.
