Leicester not in for De Jong?

Reports in England state Leicester City are not interested in Nigel de Jong, contrary to Italian speculation.

It was reported this week that the Milan midfielder was the subject of a €4.5m [£3.3m] bid from Claudio Ranieri’s high-flying Foxes.

However, the Leicester Mercury is today reporting that the 31-year-old is not on Leicester’s shortlist, as they are well-stocked in central midfield.

Ranieri’s side are unlikely title contenders in the English Premier League, currently sitting just two points behind leaders Arsenal.

De Jong has made just five Serie A appearances for Sinisa Mihajlovic's side this season, and was sent-off in the draw with Verona.
