Leicester boss Rodgers eager to add to squad

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers admits he's eager to add to his squad before the market shuts.

Rodgers is desperate to add a centre-half and another forward, while winger Demarai Gray is among the players who will be allowed to leave if a suitable offer arrives.

He said: "We said before the season that we may need up to five players. If we could bring in five I felt that would strengthen the squad and really help us to keep progressing.

"It's never easy. We've been able to bring in a couple and we see the impact that Timothy Castagne has made and Cengiz Under will help us for sure.

"There are other areas we want to improve on. But if we can't do that, then we'll still be excited by the players we have as there's a lot of growth there."
