Leicester: Foxes tracking Rhys Norrington-Davies

Leicester: Foxes tracking Rhys Norrington-Davies -Leicester City News

Leicester City are now ‘tracking’ Sheffield United defender Rhys Norrington-Davies, according to reliable journalist Pete O’Rourke.

The Lowdown: Attracting interest

The left-back has completed multiple loan spells with the likes of Luton Town and Stoke City over the past few seasons, but has now nailed down a starting place at Bramall Lane since his return last summer.

The 23-year-old has played a significant role in helping the Blades reach the top of the Championship table as it stands, and his form appears to have attracted interest from the Premier League, with a trio of clubs, including the Foxes, name-checked.

The Latest: Leicester eyeing Norrington-Davies

Taking to Twitter, O’Rourke confirmed that Leicester, alongside Crystal Palace and Bournemouth, are all monitoring Norrington-Davies ahead of a potential future move.

“Crystal Palace, Leicester and Bournemouth are tracking Sheffield United and Wales star Rhys Norrington-Davies.”

The Verdict: Van De Beek and Norrington-Davies in January?

Brendan Rodgers’ side have recently been heavily linked with a move for Manchester United’s Donny Van De Beek, and Norrington-Davies could be the next to follow in his footsteps and make the switch to the King Power Stadium.

The Welshman, dubbed ‘aggressive’ by former Sheffield United midfielder Mark Duffy, has started all 12 of the Blades’ second-tier games this season, and averages 1.8 clearances per 90 minutes, alongside winning 3.1 of his aerial duels per outing (WhoScored).

Norrington-Davies also has the versatility to play as a centre-back and in midfield, making him an attractive option to the Northern Irish boss, so this could definitely be one to watch in the New Year.

Adding the creativity and technical spark of Van De Beek alongside a versatile and combative presence in Norrington-Davies could be the perfect investment for a mid-season jump start.
