Leicester hone in on departing Villa winger Albrighton

Promoted Leicester City are set to sign departing Aston Villa winger Marc Albrighton.

The 24-year old has been released by Villa and is now set to join the Foxes on a free transfer according to multiple reports.

Albrighton spent time on loan with Wigan Athletic in the first half of last season but returned to Villa Park to be a key part of the club's Premier League survival.

He has been with Villa since joining the youth academy in 1998 but his time at his boyhood club has now come to an end as he looks forward to helping Leicester in their return to top flight football.
