Leicester have extended young goalkeeper Carl Pentney's contract until the end of the season.

Pentney has yet to make an appearance for the Foxes but Nigel Pearson is confident the 20-year-old, who has had loan spells at York and Woking, can break into the first team.

"He has done very well and has the opportunity to develop as a player and to see were he takes it," the Leicester boss told the club's official website.
