Leicester City is delighted to announce that teenage forward Jeffrey Schlupp has agreed a new contract with the Club.
After putting pen-to-paper on a deal that keeps him with the Foxes until June 2013, the German Under-19 international has immediately joined League 1 club Brentford on a one-month loan.
Having signed his first professional contract in July 2010, Schlupp, 18, has continued to impress in the City youth and reserve ranks, helping the Club into the quarter-finals of the FA Youth Cup for the first time in 21 years.
Selected to travel with the first team on the recent away trip to Queens Park Rangers, he was named in a matchday squad for the first time four days later and was an unused substitute for the game against Norwich City at the Walkers Stadium.
Jeff, who joined the Foxes Academy as a 13-year-old in 2005, now heads to Griffin Park to begin the next stage of his development as he looks to experience regular first team football for the first time.
He joins City defender Robbie Neilson on loan with Nicky Forster's side and could make his debut in the Bees' home game against Huddersfield Town on Tuesday night.
