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.
