Leicester in James Justin talks

Leicester City have entered talks with Luton Town over the possibility of signing James Justin, according to Sky Sports.

The 21-year-old defender was named in the League One Team of the Year at the end of the season as Luton secured promotion to the Championship, and his fine performances have alerted several clubs from the Premier League. This means Leicester are expected to face stiff competition for his signature, mostly in the form of the newly promoted Aston Villa.

The fee that Luton will demand to let Justin go is apparently set to be over £10 million, which is certainly a lot for a player from the third tier of English football, but the Hatters feel they have the right to ask for that much given the growing interest in the player.

It remains to be seen whether the Foxes would be willing to pay up, especially given that their primary target for this summer remains securing a permanent deal for Youri Tielemans, who spent the second half of 2018/19 at the King Power Stadium on loan from AS Monaco.
