BURTON Albion signed Leicester City striker Jacob Blyth on loan ahead of last night's game against Aldershot at the Pirelli Stadium.

The 20-year-old will be hoping to make a swift debut for the Brewers having joined until January 12.

Brewers boss Gary Rowett said: "Jacob is a big powerful boy and is top scorer for Leicester’s development squad this season. He’s someone who we’ve watched a few times now and we’ve got really good links with Leicester City."

The Foxes signed Blyth from Southern League Premier Division outfit Leamington after he had previously had spells at Bedworth United and Nuneaton Griff. He has gone on to score six goals in 11 games for the Leicester City development side this season.
