Hull City have signed striker Martyn Waghorn on loan from Championship rivals Leicester City until January.

The 21-year-old, who is currently on international duty with England Under-21s, played under Tigers boss Nigel Pearson at Leicester.

The former Sunderland trainee joined Leicester, initially on loan in August 2009, and went on to make 84 appearances, scoring 16 goals.

He joined the Foxes for a fee which could rise to £3m last summer.
