Leicester have signed defender Louis Rowley from Manchester United on a one-year-deal.

Rowley, 19, usually operates at left-back but impressed in a central midfield role for United's Under-21 side last season.

He is the second United player to move to the newly-promoted Premier League side this summer after striker Jack Barmby made the switch in May.

Rowley could start his City career with a development squad game on Monday.
