Leicester are set to complete the loan capture of Chelsea left-back Patrick van Aanholt.

Leicester chief Sven-Goran Eriksson looks to have won the race to sign the highly-rated defender, ahead of fellow league rivals Nottingham Forest and Swansea.

It is believed Leicester were willing to pay significantly more of his wages.

The 20-year-old has made six appearances for the Blues this season, starting most recently in the 7-0 drubbing of Ipswich in the FA Cup.

Van Aanholt spent a successful loan period with Newcastle last season, playing seven games for the Magpies in their victorious Championship campaign.

And the young Dutchman looks set to provide much-needed competition for current left-back Bruno Berner, whose place in the first team looks under threat once again.

  • He is very good, a huge promise and have an exciting way of playing the game. If you get him on loan, you’ll be lucky.

  • Yeah, it all looks very promising at the moment. It’s basically a done deal from what I hear, so fingers crossed it’ll be sorted tomorrow.
