Vaughan Signs

Vaughan Signs

Nigel Pearson has moved to capture Everton striker James Vaughan on loan for a month.

Leicester also have the option to extend the deal until the end of the season should they wish, with Pearson naturally keen to patch up the continued loss of top-goalscorer Matty Fryatt who remains sidelined with a jaw injury.

Vaughan spent two matches on loan at Derby County earlier in the season, only to be recalled by Everton due to a tear in his cartilage.

It is thought that Rams boss Nigel Clough had hoped to tie up a second loan deal for Vaughan when he had recovered from injury, but Leicester have now got their man from under the noses of their East Midlands rivals.

The 21-year-old returned from injury to find the net twice in succession for the Toffees, in matches against Burnley and Carlisle.

Vaughan has always struggled with injuries since breaking into the Everton team at the tender age of 16, becoming the Premier League's youngest ever goalscorer along the way.
