Leicester City have signed Nigerian striker Daniel Uchechi on loan until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old, who joins from FC Dender in Nigeria, has been on trial at the Walkers Stadium and joins subject to Football League approval.

Uchechi, who is a Nigerian Under-20 and Under-23 international, moved to England in 2002 and was on the books at Charlton Athletic and West Ham.

He becomes manager Sven-Goran Eriksson's fifth January signing.

Defender Ben Mee and striker Yakubu have both joined on loan, while Kyle Naughton's loan deal has been extended and there has been a permanent deal for Sol Bamba.
