The Foxes have had an offer of £1m accepted by Blackpool for the 26-year-old defender, who has been a regular first-team pick this season.

Baptiste moved to Bloomfield Road in 2008 following a stint at Mansfield, where he started his career.

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson has already confirmed he plans to strengthen his squad next month.

And West Brom striker Chris Wood is believed to have agreed a deal in principle to join Leicester in January.

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
