Leicester eyeing Albrighton move

Leicester City are closing in on a deal to sign Aston Villa winger Marc Albrighton, according to the Mail Online.

The former England U21 international has been with Villa since he was nine years old, but is out of contract this summer.

He spent a month on loan at Wigan Atheltic last October, but returned to play a key part in the Midlands club’s survival run-in.

Foxes boss Nigel Pearson is keen to strengthen his squad ahead of the clubs return to top-flight football after a ten-year absence.

Experienced winger Lloyd Dyer, who has been with the club for the past six seasons, is himself closing in on a move to Watford, so Albrighton would compete with both Anthony Knockaert and Riyad Mahrez for a starting berth.

Leicester finished the 2013/14 campaign with a club record 102 points, clinching the Championship title on April 22nd with two games to spare.
