Leicester goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen has revealed he plans to leave the Walkers Stadium in January.

Nielsen only joined Leicester in the summer from AaB Aalborg, but has failed to break into the first team under either Martin Allen or new boss Gary Megson.

And after talks with the Championship club, the Dane has been given the green light to move on during the January transfer window.

"It was a dream when I signed the contract." Nielsen told Ekstra Bladet.

"But besides that my family has settled well, it's not been fun because I came here to play first team football, not for the reserves.

"Therefore, I am happy that the director Tim Davies has given me permission to look for a new club."
