Exclusive: Steve Howey urges Leicester to win race for PSV’s Noni Madueke

Leicester City would be making a shrewd signing if they can acquire Noni Madueke, according to former Foxes defender Steve Howey.

Madueke has made a stunning start to the season, scoring five goals and adding an assist in six PSV Eindhoven appearances.

The 19-year-old winger, who has already been capped by the England under-21s, has been attracting interest from a number of Premier League clubs throughout the transfer window.

Among Madueke’s suitors are Leicester and Crystal Palace, with Dutch giants PSV seeking £20million (per The Sun).

Leeds United have also been keeping tabs on the former Tottenham Hotspur youngster, along with reigning Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

Brendan Rodgers has already led Leicester to silverware this season, having beaten Manchester City to the Community Shield.

The Foxes then got their Premier League campaign off to a positive start by seeing off Wolverhampton Wanderers at the weekend.

While Howey believes Madueke would need time to adjust to the pace of the Premier League, he feels the teenager would be a hit at the King Power Stadium.

We bet you can't get 100% on this quiz! After celebrating his 100th game in charge, how well do you remember Rodgers' time at Leicester so far? Firstly, against what team did Rodgers get his first Leicester win against?

Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, he said: “If a Premier League team can nick him, I think that could be good business.

“At 19, it’s a lot to ask for him to move back to another country and adapt to that game.”
