Third-year scholar Kian Williams has joined Leicestershire non-league outfit Barwell on a short-term basis.
The 18-year-old joins his new team on a work experience loan until January 27.
Williams was due to see out his previous contract, which expired in the summer, but Leicester extended his stay to allow him to complete rehabilitation following a serious knee injury.
With his extension set to expire at the end of January, Leicester are keen for Williams to taste senior football as he looks ahead to a career away from King Power Stadium.
Barwell have seen off competition from Lowestoft Town for the 18-year-old’s signature.
