Beckford: Understood to have joined Leicester in £3m deal
Sky Sports sources understand that Everton striker Jermaine Beckford has joined Leicester - while the Foxes have renewed their interest in striker Nikica Jelavic.
The big-spending Championship outfit saw a bid for Beckford rejected earlier this month but returned to talks with Everton about a beat-the-deadline move
It appears this has proved successful and the Foxes have finally landed their man in a £3million switch.
Meanwhile, Leicester boss Sven Goran Eriksson is also believed to be considering a renewed move for Rangers ace Jelavic after having an initial £6.5million bid rejected.
