Leicester struggling to convince Everton striker Yakubu

Everton striker Yakubu Aiyegbeni refuses to drop his demands at Leicester City.

The Liverpool Daily Post says Yakubu's potential move from Everton to Leicester City is on the brink of collapse with the Nigerian reluctant to drop down into the Championship on a permanent basis.

The 28-year-old striker scored 11 times in 20 games whilst on loan at the Walkers' Stadium last season, and Foxes boss Sven-Goran Eriksson is eager to retain his services ahead of a promotion push next year.

Yakubu was quoted earlier this year as saying he would be happy to return to the Midlands permanently, but with Turkish giants Fenerbahce having expressed an interest in the former Middlesbrough man, and able to match his Everton wages, his stance appears to have changed.
