Everton have completed the signing of striker Marcus Bent from Ipswich.
Bent, 26, joins on a three-year contract and becomes the Toffees' first signing of the summer.
Bent, who spent last season on loan at Leicester, scored 10 goals for the Foxes last season, including a last-minute winner against Everton at the
Walkers Stadium in March.
Manager David Moyes beat off competition from Portsmouth and West Brom for his signature.
