Naughton joins Foxes
Sven-Goran Eriksson has swooped to sign Tottenham right-back Kyle Naughton on loan until January.
England Under-21 international Naughton was expected to join fellow Championship strugglers Portsmouth, but the deal fell through as a result of personal differences.
As a result Leicester have made their move for the Spurs defender, who spent the back half of last season on loan at Middlesbrough.
Naughton, who has six caps at Under-21 level, broke through the ranks at Sheffield United where he rose to prominence in the 2008/09 season.
During that campaign he was featured in the Championship team of the year, scooped the Blades' young player of the season and was second only to Matthew Kilgallon in the club's senior accolade.
His performances at Bramall Lane prompted Tottenham to make their move for the youngster, but first team opportunities ever since have been limited.
Naughton looks set to go straight into Eriksson's squad for the visit of Hull on Saturday, and could head straight into the City first team.
