Report: Leicester City interested in signing Tottenham Hotspur winger Aaron Lennon

Aaron Lennon

Tottenham Hotspur winger Aaron Lennon is reportedly on Leicester City’s radar, with Hull City also interested.

Leicester City are interested in signing Tottenham Hotspur winger Aaron Lennon on loan for the rest of the season, according to Sky Sports.

North London outfit Tottenham have told the former Leeds United star to leave White Hart Lane today, as reported by The Daily Mail.

Hull City are interested in the 27-year-old, with manager Steve Bruce telling BBC Sport last week: "We have had conversations with Spurs over the last 24 hours and it now rests on the boy Aaron himself."

It has now been reported by Sky Sports that Premier League outfit Leicester have shown an interest in Lennon, who has struggled for playing time so far this season.

The England international has made just nine appearances in the Premier League and is clearly a squad player at Spurs at the moment.

Lennon reportedly wants to play more, and perhaps it is best for him if he leaves White Hart Lane on transfer deadline day.

The former Leeds star is unlikely to make himself a first-team regular for Spurs as the season progresses, and he is almost certainly going to be a starter at Leicester or Hull.

Both Leicester and Hull are struggling for survival in the Premier League and could do with a player who knows the league inside out.

Lennon may not be a player who can make a big impact at Tottenham and lead them to Champions League football, but he is certainly someone who can help a struggling team retain their Premier League status.
