Tom Lawrence returns to Leicester City...

Tom Lawrence has completed his loan spell with Rotherham United and has returned to parent club Leicester City.

The striker was an instant hit with the AESSEAL New York Stadium fans making six appearances which included a goal in the 2-1 victory over Wigan Athletic.

Manager Steve Evans hailed the 20-year-old for his contribution with the youngster now rejoining Leicester’s fight for Premier League survival.

“Young Tom has been outstanding on and off the pitch in his short time with us,” Evans told

“He may well be back again, we’ll have to wait and see. I had a long chat with Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson yesterday and he needs immediate cover as he is losing a couple of players due to the forthcoming African Nations Cup.

“We are grateful to Nigel and Leicester City for allowing us to have Tom here and I have no doubt we will look to do further player business in January.” 

Rotherham United would like to thank Tom for his contribution whilst with the club.
