De Laet helped the Foxes win the Premier League last season and also played a part in Middlesbrough’s successful promotion from the Championship.
Manager Roberto Di Matteo said: “I’m pleased to have brought Ritchie to the Club.
“He is another player who not only has Championship experience but has also played a part in helping a team win promotion back to the Premier League.”
