Leicester City

Foxes closing in on Luton starlet

26th June 2019, 09:34 by Alex Jack

Leicester City look like they will win the battle this summer to sign highly-rated Luton Town starlet James Justin.

There has been plenty of interest in the 21-year-old defender, who was a key figure in helping the Hatters secure their place in the Championship for next season.

Newly-promoted Aston Villa, along with Scottish champions Celtic, were both credited with an interest although the latest reports have suggested Leicester will win the race to sign Justin.

It's believed £8million will be enough to bring Justin to King Power Stadium, with Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers clearly having great faith the youngster can make the step up to the Premier League.
