Northampton Town have signed Leicester City midfielder Ryan Watson on loan until January.
The 20-year-old joined Leicester a year ago, and has been part of their development squad since.
Ryan is a player we have tracked since last Christmas. I have seen him play at least half a dozen times and he has impressed me.
He is an all round good midfield player. He gets about the park, he is strong in the tackle and he can pass the ball well. He wants to come and play senior football and that is a really refreshing attitude.
We have tried to bring him in before and I am really pleased we have been able to get the loan completed now. Thanks to Leicester City for allowing us to borrow Ryan, there is a good relationship between the clubs. They know we will look after him, he will help us and he will also gain valuable experience at the same time.

Assistant manager Andy King has been appointed caretaker manager in the interim, with the help of goalkeeping coach Tim Flowers.
The statement from the club reads:
Northampton Town Football Club would like to apologise that no comment has been made by the Chairman in the last few days but until a contractual settlement with Aidy Boothroyd is agreed, the legal advice he has received is to make no comment.
The club would like to assure supporters that a huge amount of work is going on behind the scenes to appoint our next manager, and that the entire Board of Directors are engaged in this process.
The Board has a huge amount of respect for Andy King and Tim Flowers and it is clear from the performance on Boxing Day, with a squad that has been decimated by injuries and loan recalls, that the players are behind them.
