Skysports.com understands Leicester are in talks with Everton about a beat-the-deadline move for Jermaine Beckford.

Leicester have been chasing Beckford for some time and saw a bid for the player rejected earlier this month.

Big-spending Leicester are believed to have rekindled their interest in Beckford as they look to bring in a proven striker before the transfer window slams shut at 11pm

Everton are thought to be open to the idea of selling Beckford to raise funds for their own transfer plans.

Beckford is believed to be happy to stay at Everton, but Leicester are hoping to persuade him to make the move to King Power Stadium.
