Leicester City have signed Aston Villa striker Nathan Delfouneso on a one-month loan deal.

The England Under-21 international has failed to earn a regular spot at Villa this season, starting just two games and making a total of six appearances.

Delfouneso, 20, came through the youth ranks at Villa Park and has a contract which keeps him at the club until 2014.

But just 13 of his 47 appearances have been starts and he also spent time on loan with Burnley last season.

Delfouneso is the second new arrival at the King Power Stadium in the January transfer window, following the signing of Danny Drinkwater on Friday.

He has represented England at every youth level and was top scorer at the 2009 European Under-19 Championship, scoring four goals as England finished runners-up to hosts Ukraine.

Delfouneso has also scored three times in 12 appearances for the Under-21s.

The striker could make his Foxes debut in Monday's game at Southampton.
