'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Ozzie Goes To Leicester

There were a number of rumours linking Osbourne to a loan move to Leicester and now the deal has been done and dusted, all that remains is for him to recover sufficient fitness and he'll be off for a month.

The Foxes manager, Ian Holloway, is hopeful that Osbourne can make his loan debut this Saturday in their game against Norwich, which is most likely going to happen.

Speaking to IC Brum, Martin O'Neill said of the move:

'Leicester have asked about him going on loan. I said 'yes' and had he been fit he might have gone last week. First of all, before he does anything, he has to get fit.

'I have said in general terms that now we are out of the FA Cup and the games are down to one a week, in many aspects it might be good for him to get a couple of games.

'You are always torn between boys going out on loan and then picking up some injuries.

'It is a balancing act the whole time but Isaiah would only go for a month, and maybe get some games he needs in the time he's away from us.'

Osbourne would definitely benefit from a run of matches and it's certainly in our best interests to let him go at this stage I think.
