Skysports.com understands Leicester are closing in on a deal for Manchester City's forgotten midfielder Michael Johnson.

Johnson has endured two injury-hit seasons at City and has slipped way down the pecking order at Etihad Stadium.

The 23-year-old is keen to leave City as he looks to get his career back on track and City are thought to be willing to loan him out.

Wolves and Leeds have both been credited with an interest in Johnson, but Leicester are thought to be favourites for the highly-rated midfielder.

Leicester boss Sven Goran Eriksson is a huge admirer of Johnson having given the player his big break in the City team when he was in charge of the club.

The Championship hopefuls have lined up a move to take Johnson to the King Power Stadium on a season-long loan deal as they look to build a squad capable of winning promotion to the Premier League.
