Skysports.com understands Leicester are in talks to sign former Manchester City midfielder Gelson Fernandes.

Foxes boss Sven-Goran Eriksson is exploring the possibility of bringing Fernandes back to England from St Etienne.

The Swiss international spent last season on loan at Chievo and it appears he does not figure in St Etienne's plans.

The news has alerted Eriksson, who is a big fan of the 24-year-old having worked with him during his time in charge of City.

Fernandes' agent, Marcel Schmid, has confirmed Leicester have expressed an interest in the player and that he is weighing up a move to the Championship.

"The two clubs are in discussions about a deal," Schmid told skysports.com.

"Sven Goran Eriksson is a big admirer of Gelson having worked with him at Manchester City and he would like to work with him again.

"Gelson enjoyed some good experiences with Sven and he would be happy to join him again.

"We are open to more discussions, but nothing has been decided as yet."
