Leicester City have signed Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane on loan until the end of the season.

Days after signing a new contract with his parent club, the 19-year-old joins the Foxes after an unsuccessful loan spell with Norwich City.

The young striker was only able to make one Premier League start for The Canaries and will be hoping for better fortunes with Leicester. 

The Blues' manager Nigel Pearson told BBC Radio Leicester: "Hopefully he will bring goals and a fresh impetus. It keeps the competition really keen."

Kane is an England under-19 international and has experience in the Championship having scored nine goals during a loan spell with Millwall in 2012.

Pearson went on to say: "He's a player we know quite a lot about and I am delighted.

"He can play as wide striker or as a central striker. He is a decent size as well and gives us another option in forward positions.

"If you are going to bring players in on loan they have to have a hunger for success and I am confident we have another player coming into our ranks who will bring a lot of positive qualities to the squad."

Kane joins Leicester as they look to recover from back-to-back league defeats and make a push for the automatic promotion places.

Leicester currently sit in 5th place in the Championship and travel to Blackpool this weekend. 

Kane has already joined up with the squad and will be hoping to make his debut at Bloomfield Road.
