Leicester City are moving for Everton striker James Vaughan.

The Mirror says Vaughan is joining Leicester City's promotion push - to the fury of Championship rivals Derby County.

Vaughan has been cleared to sign for Nigel Pearson's ambitious outfit on loan, but Nigel Clough's Rams are furious about missing out on his signature.

The Goodison striker was due to rejoin Derby after an injury-hit spell was cut short in the first half of the season, but they found out last night they had lost him.

Instead Vaughan is going to the Foxes and will help their bid to make the play-offs, including a controversial clash with their East Midlands neighbours during his spell.
