'It's a great thing' - Leicester ace hails Cambiasso impact

Leicester City midfielder Matty James says that he is delighted that he is able to train alongside Esteban Cambiasso.

Leicester City's Matty James is loving training with Esteban Cambiasso at the King Power Stadium.

Cambiasso completed a shock transfer to Leicester this summer and it seems that his teammates have welcomed his addition with open arms.

James is in direct competition for a place in the heart of Leicester's midfield with Cambiasso, but he is still delighted to have someone of his calibre on board. 

“With Esteban coming in it’s a great experience," he said to the club's official site. "He’s a great player to train with and play with. The stories that he has and the things that he’s done.

“To play for Real Madrid and Inter Milan – these are the things that you dream of as a child to play for big clubs like them.

“It’s a great thing for us to have such a player like that but then we’ve got such youth around him, it creates a great balance.”

The Argentine legend has had a glistening career at the top of the game, but he has not seemingly come to Leicester for one last pay-day.

To the contrary, he has forced his way into Nigel Pearson's first-team and impressed all watchers with his boundless energy.

An all-action personality, Cambiasso looks hungry for success and he says that he has already became a pivotal part of the Foxes team.

Pearson's side have made a brilliant start to life in the Premier League, even if they are winless in two, and they head into the international break well clear of the relegation zone.

They will be hoping to keep this distance between them and the bottom three up when they return to action, too, as they look to consolidate their position in the top flight after promotion last season.
