Leicester sign permanently Man Utd defensive utility Louis Rowley

Leicester City have signed permanently Manchester United defender Louis Rowley.

Rowley has joined Leicester City on a one-year contract.

The 19-year-old will join former Red Devils team-mate Jack Barmby, who signed for the newly-promoted side in May.

United reserve manager Warren Joyce utilised Rowley at both full-back and as a defensive midfielder as the side reached the final of the Under-21s Premier League.

Leicester boss Nigel Pearson has a successful track record of signing United youngsters, having bought midfielders Danny Drinkwater and Matty James and right-back Ritchie De Laet in 2012.

The trio were key to securing the Championship top spot last season and are expected to keep their places for their upcoming Premier League campaign.
