Premier League leaders Leicester plotting move for Wigan reject

Premier League leaders Leicester City are plotting a shock move for former Wigan Athletic reject Andy Delfort next month, according to talkSPORT.

The 24-year old is currently with French side Caen after a disappointing spell with the Latics after moving there for £3m in 2014.

A former French Under-20 international, he is back in the goals in his homeland after returning to Ligue 1 and has notched an impressive six goals already this term.

The table topping Foxes have shocked the footballing world this season after Claudio Ranieri has led them to the summit, despite being bottom under Nigel Pearson just 12 months ago.

Star striker Jamie Vardy has been linked with a move away after his history making 11 goals on the bounce this term.

Club record signing Andrej Kramaric seems likely to leave the club in January after failing to dislodge Vardy up front, with Juventus and Inter Milan reportedly keen on taking him on loan.
