Leicester City's owners are negotiating to buy Belgian second division club Oud Heverlee Leuven, say Sky sources.
It is understood that the Thai owners are attracted by the potential of the side, also known as OHL, to become a feeder club for the reigning Premier League champions.
Leicester's vice-chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, who also owns and runs the duty-free chain King Power, is in advanced talks for the company to make the acquisition.
It is also understood that even if the takeover goes through, the son of billionaire club owner and chairman Vichai will remain in his role at the Foxes.
There have been some reports that Aiyawatt might leave his role to take the reins in Belgium.
There has been no comment from Leicester, who are not directly involved in the deal.
Sky sources have revealed it is a commercial decision being taken by King Power alone.
Leicester, currently 11th place in the Premier League with four games remaining, host Watford on Saturday.
