Leicester City's up-and-coming midfielder Andy King is in the sights of Aston Villa.

The Birmingham Mail says Villa boss Martin O'Neill sees King as an alternative to Leeds United winger Fabian Delph.

King, who at 20 is just over a year older than Delph, played a massive part in the Foxes' march towards the League One title last year.

He is thought to be valued around the £2 million mark and would be viewed as 'one for the future'.

King joined Leicester in 2004 after being released by Chelsea and although born in England, has represented Wales at all levels.
