The rumour mill: week one

The rumour mill: week one

News has certainly been thin on the ground for Leicester fans over the last week, with very, very little of any interest going on at all.

The club have been teasing us with a new away strip, and er, that's about it.

But there have been a handful of rumours to discuss over the past week or so, and here they are...

Alex Bruce (Ipswich): I think it's fair to say this one's fairly inevitable unless something spectacular ends its progress. Ipswich have told the centre back he can find a new club and Pearson has told the player himself of his interest after impressing on loan with the club at the tail end of last season.

Verdict: Likely to be a replacement for the probably outgoing Wayne Brown, and will be available on a free transfer. Seeing as we have little in the way of money it wouldn't be the worst signing in the world.

Adam Le Fondre (Rotherham): Sky Sports reported a few days ago that his agent dismissed reports that ourselves or Derby had made an agreement with the striker.

After failing to gain promotion with Millers this season Le Fondre looks set to move on elsewhere. A clause in his contract which says that the striker can leave if a Championship club makes an offer may well be triggered.

Verdict: We were indeed linked with a move for the same man two summers ago, but nothing concrete ever materialised. With a striker high on the priority list our interest could well be true. Mere speculation at this stage though.

Steve Morison (Millwall): The Sun reports today that we are leading the chase for the Millwall man, who impressed for the Lions en route to promotion back to the Championship this year.

The striker made the step up from non-league football to League One seemingly effortlessly, finding the net 23 times in all competitions for Kenny Jacket's side.

Verdict: Millwall would be unwilling to allow the striker to leave without a fight. Question is would we have the funds to start a battle for the 26-year-old?
