Leicester midfielder Adam Dawson has joined Conference side Bristol Rovers.

The Liverpool academy graduate, 22, has arrived on an initial month-long loan, but Rovers will have the option to extend it until the end of the season.

Dawson signed for the Foxes from Wigan in 2013, but has yet to make a first-team appearance for his parent club.

"He's been on loan at Nuneaton this season and has done really well," Rovers boss Darrell Clarke told BBC Radio Bristol.

"I got offered the lad a while ago, but it wasn't the right time. We've had reports from the Nuneaton games since then and he's been the stand-out player.

"It became a bit of a no-brainer now he knows the level. He's technically very good, sharp and he gets at people."

Dawson's arrival follows the signing of former Millwall striker Jermaine Easter on Monday.
