Josh Knight rides in

Leicester defender joins on loan.

5 October 2020

Gareth Ainsworth has strengthened his squad with the capture of highly-rated Leicester City defender Josh Knight on a loan deal until January 3rd.

The 23-year-old excelled for Peterborough United on loan last season, scoring at Adams Park in the 3-3 draw a year ago today, and has been a regular for the Foxes’ under-23 side over the past four years.

The Blues boss said: “Josh is someone we tried to bring in during the summer and I’m really pleased to be able to get the deal done. We’ve been keeping tabs on him for some time and he proved he could make the step up into senior football with a really strong loan spell in League 1 last season.

“He gives us another option in defence and he comes in at an important time as we’re working hard to get the team as strong as possible to make sure we can start picking up points and meeting the standard that’s required to survive in this division.”

Josh will wear number 12.
