Foxes snap up cunningham

RISING Irish star Greg Cunningham will get the opportunity to further his education after agreeing a loan move to Leicester City, writes Daniel McDonnell.

The Galway native will join the Championship side until January after new Foxes manager Sven-Goran Eriksson moved to secure his services.

It's good news for Giovanni Trapattoni, who is a big fan of the Manchester City left- back and has already capped him twice, even though he is only third choice at Eastlands. With Kevin Kilbane approaching the end of his career, progress from Cunningham would be extremely welcome for the Irish boss.
