Dundee Utd set to land Leicester striker Odhiambo

The 18-year old will join up with former Foxes boss Craig Levein when the transfer window opens, in a deal likely to keep him at Tannadice for the rest of the season.

Odhiambo has already spent two months on loan at League One Southend this term, making six appearances, and Holloway believes a spell in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League could be of benefit to the player.

He told the Leicester Mercury: "It will be a loan move. He might benefit from playing games. He's a good lad and I don't want to lose him."
