He joined Conference National club Histon on loan for the remainder of the 2009–10 season on 26 March 2010,[8] In May 2010, Verma was awarded with another contract extension by Leicester.[9] He finally made his senior debut for the club as a substitute in a 4–3 League Cup win over Macclesfield on 10 August 2010.[10] On 11 August, Verma was part of the reserves squad that won the Totesport.com Cup in a 2–1 win over Oldham Athletic reserves at Quorn FC.[11]

On 27 August 2010, he joined Conference National club Kidderminster Harriers on loan for a month.[12] However, he returend to Leicester after breaking his hand during his debut against Newport County.[13] On 19 November, Verma joined Darlington on loan until January 2011.[14]
