It is interesting that Leicester City have again been linked with Lincoln City’s 26-year-old Northern Ireland centre-back Gary McAuley.

The Lincolnshire Echo website reveals that City eyes were watching McAuley when he returned from injury to help the Imps draw 1-1 with Bury on Saturday.

McAuley is a dominant defender and a goal threat. It is significant with our poor record of defending set pieces that we are keeping tabs on just the sort of player who might improve that weakness.

A move somewhere seems likely because McAuley feels his international options might be limited playing in Division two.

Earlier this season Crewe had a bid of £150,000 accepted for McAuley but the deal fell through.
