Josh Knight is an imposing centre-half that has progressed well through the Club's Academy set-up and enjoyed his first full season with the Development Squad in 2016/17.
In February 2017, he found the net during a 2-1 victory for the Under-23s over Arsenal in Premier League 2 during a strong debut season.
Despite only breaking through into the Development Squad ranks after Christmas, Knight ended 2016/17 among the highest appearance makers.
The Fleckney-based defender has been with the Club since the age of eight after playing locally in the Harborough district in the south of Leicestershire.
Knight was one of four defenders taken out to Hong Kong in the summer of 2017 to participate in the HKFC Citi Soccer Sevens after helping the Development Squad stave off relegation in Premier League 2.
He penned a new two-year contract in July, 2017 and emerged from the bench during the First Team's 4-1 Carabao Cup victory at Sheffield United in August.
