Leicester City have completed a deal to take the Arsenal defender Kerrea Gilbert on a season-long loan.

The 21-year-old full-back has made nine appearances for the Gunners first team and has had spells on loan at Cardiff City and Southend United.

Foxes boss Nigel Pearson worked with Gilbert in his England youth days.

Pearson told the club's website: "He is a fighter and a winner. He is strong in the tackle and athletic and we will only benefit from his arrival."

Gilbert is Pearson's fifth signing of the summer, following Michael Morrison, Lloyd Dyer, Nicky Adams and Aleksander Tunchev.
