Brentford, Leicester making move for Shakhtar Donetsk's Tete

Brentford and Leicester City are making a move for Shakhtar Donetsk's Tete.

The £25million-rated Brazilian wants to cancel his contract with his Ukrainian club as the war with Russia continues to rage and football is suspended, says the Daily Mail.

FIFA have already announced that foreign players in Ukraine and Russia can leave on loan as long as they make a decision before April 7.

Shakhtar have 12 Brazilians registered and all are looking to find other clubs at least on a temporary basis.

However, talks are being held by some about annulling contracts amid calls from players union FIFPRO who say FIFA should take a stronger stance to protect players' welfare.

Tete and teammate Dodo are among those looking at permanent moves and Premier League sides have been approached to see if they can take them into their squads.
