City loan for Spurs youngster Kane

Leicester City have secured the services of Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane, on loan until the end if the season.

The 19-year-old, whose season loan deal was cancelled by loaning club Norwich City last month, has previously seen success in the Championship. He scored nine goals during a stay in Millwall last year.

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson is delighted to have secured the services of the England youngster.

"He's a player we know quite a lot about and I am delighted," he told the BBC, "He can play as wide striker or as a central striker. He is a decent size as well and gives us another option in forward positions.

"If you are going to bring players in on loan they have to have a hunger for success and I am confident we have another player coming into our ranks who will bring a lot of positive qualities to the squad.

"Hopefully he will bring goals and a fresh impetus. It keeps the competition really keen."

Young Foxes defender Liam Moore is set for a loan spell at Brentford, Nigel Pearson confirmed tonight.

Speaking to the BBC following Leicester City's home defeat to Charlton Athletic, the manager said that Moore will benefit from a spell of first-team action. With the City squad back to full fitness - and long-term injuries to defenders Sean St Ledger and Zak Whitbread both cleared-up - Moore's first-team opportunities at the King Power Stadium have been limited since his run in the squad towards the start of the season.

City owners honoured with incomprehensible surname

Leicester City's owners have been granted a new honorific title by the King of Thailand and will change their surname as part of the custom.

Club Chairman Vichai Raksriaksorn and his son, Vice-Chairman Aiyawatt, will from now on be known by the name Srivaddhanaprabha following a royal charter awarded to those doing great service to Thailand.

The honour is usually reserved for those heir to the Thai throne or who have done service to the Thai royal family, but in some circumstances is bestowed upon those who are deemed to have done good for the nation.
