Wycombe Wanderers have agreed a new loan deal for Josh Knight with Leicester City, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.
The 23-year-old moved to Adams Park in October on a three-month loan which expired on 3 January.
However, a recruitment source has told Football Insider that a fresh deal has been settled between the two clubs which will see the defender remain at Wycombe until the end of the season.
Knight has been ever-present for Gareth Ainsworth’s side since he joined, starting 19 Championship games, including the 3-1 loss against Middlesbrough last weekend.
Speaking shortly after the versatile defender’s arrival last year, Ainsworth revealed that he was a player that the club had “kept tabs on for some time.”
Football Insider understands that Wycombe have held talks about signing Knight permanently but Leicester rejected their offer.
A product of the Leicester City academy, Knight can play across the back-four as well as on the right-hand side of midfield if required.
He has made just one senior appearance for the Foxes, a nine minute cameo in a 4-1 EFL Cup win over Sheffield United in 2017.
The Englishman impressed while on loan at Peterborough United last season, scoring against Wycombe in a 3-3 draw at Adams Park in October 2019.
He has just six months remaining on his contract at the King Power Stadium and could join Wycombe on a permanent basis at the end of the season on a free transfer.
