Derby boss Lampard welcomes deal for Leicester midfielder King

Derby County clinched the signing of Leicester City midfielder Andy King on deadline day.

King joins on loan from Leicester until the end of the season.

He joined the Foxes as a youth in 2004 and since his first-team debut three years later has gone on to feature 379 times in all competitions.

King was part of the side that claimed a stunning Premier League title triumph in 2015-16 although he has fallen down the pecking order under Claude Puel.

Derby boss Frank Lampard said, "We're delighted to welcome Andy King to Derby County for the rest of the season.

"He is a talented and experienced midfielder who has competed in the Premier League and top end of the Championship with great success.

"I am sure he will have a positive impact on the squad for the rest of the season."
