Aston Villa defender Curtis Davies has joined Leicester on a month's loan.

The 25-year-old centre-back will be available for the Foxes' npower Championship game against Hull on Saturday at the Walkers Stadium.

Davies has been unable to gain a first-team place at Villa since recovering from shoulder surgery last season.

Villa's 19-year-old striker, James Collins junior, has also joined Burton on a month-long loan deal.
