Leicester make opening bid for Sheffield Wednesday striker George Hirst

Leicester City have made an offer for Sheffield Wednesday striker George Hirst.

The Daily Mail says Leicester have seen a £1million bid for Hirst rejected.

Hirst - son of former Wednesday and England striker David - is viewed as one of the best emerging youngsters in the country.

And the Foxes have made their move for the 18-year-old striker but have been rebuffed by the Owls.

England's top clubs including Arsenal, Manchester United, Newcastle and Everton have also shown an interest in the teenager but Leicester's offer is the first firm bid.
