Stockdale heading to Leicester

02 March 2009 06:13
Foxes boss Nigel Pearson has acted quickly to sign Stockdale, 23, after Rovers manager Sam Allardyce activated a 24-hour recall clause in Bunn's loan deal. Stockdale goes straight into the squad ahead of the League One leaders' home clash against Stockport on Tuesday night. "We are very grateful to (Fulham manager) Roy Hodgson who has allowed us to take David on loan at very short notice," Pearson told the club's official website. "Mark Bunn did very well during his time here and we are obviously disappointed to see him return to Blackburn, but I am delighted that David is on board."
