Leicester have signed Manchester City’s 19-year-old left back Greg Cunningham on loan until January.

Cunningham has not made an appearance for Roberto Mancini’s side this season and will be looking to use the opportunity to gain first team football in the Championship with the Foxes.

Despite the lack of appearances in a City shirt, Cunningham has managed to grab two caps for Giovanni Trapattoni’s Republic of Ireland team this year.

The young left back made his Premier League debut in April when he replaced Adam Johnson in City’s final match of last season.

Cunningham will be competing with both Bruno Berner and Tom Kennedy for the left back spot in the Leicester side, but may fancy his chances as a Sven-Goran Eriksson capture.
