AFC Telford United have snapped up Leicester City forward Elliot Chamberlain on loan until the New Year.

The 19-year-old is a Leicester academy prospect but is yet to make a first-team appearance for the Foxes.

"He's a young striker who I think can come into our side and make a difference," boss Andy Sinton told BBC Radio Shropshire.

Chamberlain has represented Wales Under-21s along with Shrewsbury forward Tom Bradshaw.

He has had loan spells with York City and Stockport County and goes straight into Andy Sinton's squad for Saturday's game against Barrow at the New Bucks Head.

Meanwhile, Telford could be allowing another player to go out on loan to a lower non league club to get match practise.

Listen to full match commentary of Telford against Barrow on BBC Radio Shropshire DAB digital or online at bbc.co.uk/shropshire on Saturday 26 November from 1400 GMT.
