Lawrence Signs Four Year Deal

Former Manchester United midfielder Tom Lawrence has signed a four year deal at Leicester after the paperwork went through in time ahead of the deadline last night.

A deal for Lawrence figured heavily in the news and rumours of yesterday's transfer deadline day, but that confirmation was not forthcoming ahead of the closure of the 11pm window, leaving the deal in doubt, but thankfully for us and manager Nigel Pearson there was no problems other than it only being announced today.

The striker completed his medical yesterday evening and the 20 year old will stay with us now until at least June 2018.

He joined United as an eight year old, coming through their Academy and his breakthrough year came in 2013-14 including loan spells at Carlisle and Yeovil Town.

In his time with Carlisle he made 10 starts and one sub appearance, scoring three times for them, including a brace against Tranmere Rovers.

Moving on to Yeovil and making the step up the Championship, he went on to play 19 games in total for them, including a 1-1 draw against us at the King Power. He also found the net on two occasions for them.

That season he also made his bow for United following his spell with Yeovil, when then caretaker manager Ryan Giggs selected him for his starting debut in their game against Hull.

The final bits of his registration are still to go through but he could be in line for his Leicester debut against Stoke on September 13.
