Official: SA Midfielder Leaves Leicester On Loan

South African midfielder Khanya Leshabela has joined League One side Shrewsbury Town on loan for the season.

Leshabela made his Premier League debut for Leicester last season in a 5-0 win over Sheffield United, but he has now left the club on loan in search of regular game time.

"He's a lad we've been looking at for a while," Town's Manager Steve Cotterill told the club's official website.

"He's been on trial with Luton for a little while and I think they were interested in a permanent deal. Leicester didn't want to do that, and as it's evolved as every transfer does, we were able to step in - we are pleased to have him.

"He's another young player that I wanted to add to our squad. I've said all along, I want a young squad with vibrance and full of energy - he's got all of those things. He's a tough boy and a real nice lad.

"He gives us that extra competition in midfield where we've been light since Ollie Norburn left."
