Shirtliff: Signed up Foxes striker
Bury caretaker boss Peter Shirtliff has signed Leicester City striker Tom Hopper on a one-month loan deal.
The teenager signed his first professional contract at the King Power Stadium over the summer and joins the Shakers hoping to gain league experience.
Hopper has spent two years with the Foxes' youth team, and was named Academy Player of the Year last season.
He will link up with former team-mate Shane Byrne and goes straight into the squad for Saturday's League One game at Sheffield United.
