Bristol Rovers have signed Leicester City youngster Oliver Norburn on a one-month loan deal.

The 18-year-old midfielder is a product of the Foxes academy but has yet to make a first team appearance for the Championship club.

Norburn will go straight into the Pirates squad to face Morecambe in League Two on Saturday.

"The opportunity came along to join Rovers and I wanted to take the chance," he told the club website.external-link

"It is a great club and I am looking forward to my time here."

He becomes the 17th new signing to arrive at the club since the appointment of boss Paul Buckle in May.
