Leicester City have snapped up young Liverpool defender Jack Hobbs on a season-long loan deal.
The 19-year-old impressed while on loan at Scunthorpe United last term and Foxes boss Nigel Pearson hopes that Hobbs will continue his progress with the Foxes.
Hobbs himself told City's official website: "I am really pleased to have signed and can't wait to get started.
"Liverpool have some world-class centre-backs, so I spoke to the boss and he said I was free to go out on loan and gain some experience.
"Leicester showed their interest and I had no hesitation in coming here. This is a massive club with a good manager and Premier League facilities.
"I can assure everyone that I will be giving 100 per cent. I want to help this club get back to the Championship at the first time of asking."
