Hopper returns to Leicester

Leicester teenager Tom Hopper has returned to the King Power Stadium from his loan spell at Bury.

Hopper, who joined the Shakers in September, has slipped down the pecking order at the npower League One club following the return from injury of experienced striker Andy Bishop.

The 19-year-old has been left out of the last two squads by Bury boss Kevin Blackwell, falling foul of the five loan players limit.

Hopper scored three goals in 21 appearances during his time at Gigg Lane and the young striker may be sent out for further first-team experience when the loan window opens.
