Leicester have turned down an offer from Aston Villa to take Christian Fuchs on loan until the end of the season, Sky Sports News understands.

Villa wanted to sign the Austrian on a temporary deal with the view to making it permanent in the summer.

However, Leicester are unwilling to allow Fuchs to leave as he is their only cover for first-choice left back Ben Chilwell.

Fuchs was part of the Leicester side that memorably won the Premier League title in 2016, and has made a total of 117 appearances for the club since joining in 2015.
