OH Leuven are eyeing Leicester City defender Filip Benkovic.

Sky Sports says Benkovic is not part of Brendan Rodgers' plans for this season and so Leicester are prepared to allow him out on loan and would consider a substantive move for the right price.

Benkovic does have other options - Celtic confirmed they were in talks with Leicester over a possible deal a few days ago. But it looks like Neil Lennon's side are not currently favourites to do a deal.

Leading the chase is OH Leuven which - like Leicester - is owned by the Shrivaddhanaprabha family and King Power, who are backing a real push to strengthen the squad, which is currently sixth in the Belgian top division.
