Leicester have agreed to pay a settlement of £3.1million to the English Football League after the club were found to have breached Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules in 2013/14.

The Foxes exceeded the permitted £8million loss in their Championship-winning campaign but vowed to legally challenge the charge after claiming £13million of the £20.8million deficit was "allowable".

In announcing the settlement, the EFL acknowledged that the club did not make a deliberate attempt to infringe the rules and instead had misinterpreted them.

"The agreed settlement of £3,100,000 is in full and final settlement of all and any claims by the EFL against the club and its officers, in respect of the FFP regulations for season 2013/14," the league's statement said.

The England-capped front row, who has never featured under Eddie Jones, has made 66 appearances for Saints since his arrival at the club in 2015 from Newcastle Falcons.

"We would like to thank Kieran for all his efforts at Franklin Gardens over the last three years and we wish him well."
