Defender Jide Maduako will become the latest of City’s young professionals to pick up first team experience on loan, after joining non-league Ilkeston.

The versatile 18-year-old will remain with the Robins for one month and could make his debut for the Derbyshire outfit on Saturday, when they host Whitby Town in the Evo-Stick League Northern Premier division.

Maduako joined the City Academy last season, signing his first professional contract with the Foxes at the end of the campaign and subsequently becoming a regular for the Under-21s this season.

Meanwhile, City have added promising youngster Karlton Watson to the Club’s Under-21 ranks.
