David Moyes is weighing up a summer move for Leicester midfielder Andy King, according to the Daily Mail.

King has been in superb form for the Foxes this season, hitting 13 league goals to propel his side towards the Championship play-offs.

Moyes has reportedly shown interest in the Welsh international, with assistant manager Steve Round watching on in City’s 2-0 victory over Derby two weeks ago.

The 22-year-old got himself on the score-sheet that day, and Moyes could be ready to delve into the second tier once again where successes in the past have been rewarded.

Tim Cahill, Joleon Lescott and Phil Jagielka were all plucked from the Championship at one stage, and have since risen to far more prominent heights in the Premier League.

Everton striker Yakubu is currently on loan at the Walkers Stadium, and the Nigerian international could potentially be used as a makeweight for any potential move for cash-strapped Moyes.

Leicester are believed to be in contract negotiations with King, and are not currently in a position to have to sell their prize asset with the current backing of the club’s Thai owners.
