Leicester have continued our links with Manchester United and their Academy graduates, as we have now signed defender Louis Rowley to a one year deal.

The 19 year old becomes the second arrival to our development squad this summer following the signing of Jack Barmby back in May, and he could make his club debut at that level as early as next Monday as Steve Beaglehole’s lads take on Loughborough Dynamo in their opening pre season friendly of the summer.

Rowley is pretty versatile and came through United’s ranks as a left back but last season he was impressive in a new central midfield role. As well as showing himself to be one to watch at their U18 and U21 levels, he also impressed during United’s UEFA Youth League, having made his debut in their 4-3 win over Bayer Leverkusen in September.

Hopefully he’ll prove to be a very good addition, and knowing Barmby already, it should help him settle in quickly.
