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.
