Leicester City are set to trump West Ham United for Peterborough United striker Craig Mackail-Smith.

The Sun says Sven Goran Eriksson is set to beat Sam Allardyce in a £3million scrap for Mackail-Smith.

Leicester boss Eriksson expects to clinch the signing of Peterborough striker Mackail-Smith, 27, today after the player rejected a switch to Upton Park.

The Foxes are also closing in on a £1.2m deal for Preston defender Sean St Ledger and are talking with free agent Matt Derbyshire.
