Leicester hold talks over Jannik Vestergaard deal following centre-back issues

This, of course, leaves Leicester very light at the back for their season-opener at the weekend.

In terms of a potential fee, it is claimed the Dane will be available for less than the £25m Southampton reportedly wanted from Leicester two seasons ago due to him now being in the final year of his contract.
