Leicester to sign Sporting defender?

Reports in Spain claim Premier League leaders Leicester City are looking to Sporting Gijon’s Luis Fernandez to bolster their squad for next season.

Marca picks up a story from El Desmarque that claims the Foxes want to take Hernandez on a free transfer when his contract expires at the end of the season.

Other reports suggest Real Betis and Malaga are also keen on the 26-year-old, who could be one of a number of players to quit El Molinon in the summer when their deals run out.

Jony is another of the Sporting squad approaching free agency and expected to seek pastures new.
