Burton Albion have signed Leicester City centre-back Tom Parkes on a loan deal until the end of the season, subject to Football League clearance.

The 19-year-old, who was on loan with the Brewers for the second half of last season, has had a loan stint with Yeovil Town this term.

"He's a great lad, who enjoyed his time here last season," said Brewers boss Paul Peschisolido.

"He showed a lot of promise last year and was a key part of the team."

Peschisolido added: "He is a year older and more experienced now.

"We know his quality and he gets on well with the rest of the boys.

"With the injury we have at the moment to Nathan Stanton and the amount of games we have coming up in quick succession, I felt it was crucial to get somebody into the squad in that position."
