Leicester striker Craig King joins Northampton Town

Northampton Town have signed Leicester City striker Craig King on a one-month loan deal.

The 20-year-old spent most of last season at Hereford, playing 30 times and scoring three times, including a goal in a 3-1 win at Sixfields.

"Craig is a hardworking player who I have seen play a number of times," said boss Ian Sampson.

"He had some decent experience of playing in League Two last season and that will help him."

He added: "He is a bit different to what we have and I think he will be a good addition.

"He is the sort of player the crowd will take to because of his sheer work rate.

"We still have other targets in mind and are working on adding one more to the squad in the next couple of weeks."

King's only first-team appearance for the Foxes came as a half-time substitute in a Johnstone's Paint Trophy 0-0 draw with Lincoln City in September 2008.
