​Rodgers not ruled out Leicester centre-back signing

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has hinted he is still keen on adding a centre-back to his Leicester squad in the January transfer window.

On potential defensive reinforcements, Rodgers said: "If we didn't end up bringing anyone in then we would currently have four centre-halves here.

"Our idea is to get (Filip) Benkovic out on loan for his development but we can only do that if we have the opportunity to bring in another centre-half.

"You're always looking to add quality to the squad and of course where we sit and where we're at it can be tough to bring in that type of player, but the recruitment team here are very renowned for looking at players and being able to get players.

"The club have been very clear in terms of their support that when a player becomes available at the right price then we can do something. There's still a bit of time to go, there's a lot of work behind the scenes and we'll see what we can do."
