Leicester City eyeing Marseille defender

4438719 (1)The Leicester City fans in the Football Transfer Tavern certainly enjoyed their first game back in the big time as they held Everton to a draw.

The Foxes twice came from a goal down to show their resilience but Nigel Pearson still feels that his side need that extra bit of experience in their defence.

And according to TalkSport that man is Marseille right back Rod Fanni who is reportedly in talks with the club.

The defender would become the Foxes sixth signing of the summer having already brought in Matt Upson, Marc Albrighton, Ben Hamer, Jack Barmby, Leonardo Ulloa and Louis Rowley.

Reports suggest that the player’s representatives are due to fly to England this week and they will be hoping to thrash out a deal before their next game against Chelsea.

Fanni can boast 88 appearances for Marseille and five full international caps for France.
