City sign Sunderland winger

City sign Sunderland winger

There's renewed optimism at Leicester City after the club signed Sunderland winger Andy Welsh on loan for the rest of the season.

Welsh, a Scotland Under 21 international, is regarded by many Wearside fans as one of the club's best players and has made 15 appearances for the Black Cats this season.

He was a £15,000 signing from Stockport County where he made 81 first team appearances between 2001/2004.

Although considered primarily as a left-winger, 23-year-old Welsh can play on either flank.

He is fast and direct but not a prolific scorer and has only notched a couple of goals for Sunderland.

City manager Rob Kelly knew Welsh from his days at Stockport and told the official Leicester City website: 'He's got a good attitude and I am sure he will help us in the battle against relegation. As soon as we made our interest known he wanted to come here and that's always pleasing.'
