Leicester keen On Hatters Youngster

Leicester were first mentioned in connection with the versatile England Under-20 star a couple of years ago but the trail then went cold. However, with the talented youngster shining at Kenilworth Road and the Hatters earning back-to-back promotions to sit in the Championship, his name has resurfaced once again.

Justin can play on both flanks and scored three goals from 43 League One appearances last term to earn a spot PFA League One team of the season. Rodgers feels he needs cover at full-back with Danny Simpson now departed and is looking to build for the future at the King Power Stadium. Justin seems to fit the bill perfectly although the East Midlanders may face competition from both West Brom and Stoke City, who have also been credited with an interest.
