Leicester City are swooping for two Manchester United youngsters.

The Sunday Mirror says Ritchie De Laet and Matty James will join Leicester in a £2million transfer after struggling to break into the first team at Old Trafford.

Belgium international De Laet, 23, has only started three Premier League games for United and half of his transfer fee will go to old club Stoke.

James, 20, has been with United’s Academy since he was a teenager but leaves without making a single first-team appearance.
