Foxes turn to Kyle Naughton in an attempt to ensure they avoid relegation.
Leicester City have tabled a £3 million offer for out-of-favour Tottenham Hotspur right back Kyle Naughton, report the Mirror, and although Tottenham have not accepted the offer for the former Sheffield United man, they are expected to allow Naughton to depart White Hart Lane during the January transfer window.
Naughton was actually in Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino’s first team line up for the first game of the Premier League season, a win at West Ham United, but he was sent off for handball and has rarely been seen in the line up since.
Foxes manager Nigel Pearson has identified Naughton as a potential option as he looks to strengthen the Leicester squad for a real push for Premier League survival after their fine recent run continued with a 1-0 win over Aston Villa yesterday, but Swansea City are set to provide a counter offer for the player.
Long serving Swans right back Angel Rangel is now moving into the twilight years of his career, with Liberty Stadium manager Garry Monk clearly feeling that he needs to look for a younger replacement for the Spaniard, who can offer more of a long term option to the Swans at right back.
