City have completed the loan signing of England youth international Brooke Norton-Cuffy from Arsenal until the end of the season.
The 18-year-old right-back has been a regular in the Gunners’ U23 squad this season and has represented the Three Lions up to U18 level.
Brooke said: “It’s a very proud moment for me, to come from playing U23s to a great League One club like this is a big step for me.
Imps manager Michael Appleton added: “Brooke is a fantastic young player with excellent technical and athletic qualities who is highly thought of by his parent club.
“A big thank you to Arsenal, who have been brilliant in allowing Brooke to come to us on loan and in helping us get Brooke registered in time for tonight’s game. He will have a role to play immediately as we cope with the injuries to Adam Jackson, Joe Walsh and Lewis Montsma.”
