York have signed Leicester defender George Taft on loan for an initial month.

The 20-year-old, yet to play a senior game for Leicester, will go straight into York's squad for Saturday's trip to Exeter.

Taft, a former England Under-19 international, has progressed through the Foxes' academy and was earmarked for a spell away from the King Power Stadium earlier this summer.

He spent over three months on loan with Kettering during the 2011/12 season and gained first-team experience at Swedish side Karlstad BK.
