Championship trio chasing Leicester's Tom Lawrence

HITC Sport understands Leicester City forward Tom Lawrence is a target for Blackburn Rovers, Brighton and Hove Albion and Charlton on loan.

A number of Championship clubs, including Blackburn Rovers, Brighton & Hove Albion and Charlton are chasing Leicester City's Tom Lawrence on loan, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Lawrence joined Leicester from Manchester United last summer, but has barely figured in the first-team since his arrival.

The Wales Under-21 international made four appearances for Leicester last season, with his only start coming in the FA Cup victory over Newcastle.

Lawrence also had a spell on loan at Rotherham last season, scoring one goal in six appearances during his one-month loan stint at the New York Stadium.

The 21-year-old is currently down the pecking order in Claudio Ranieri's first-team plans and the club are thought to be open to the idea of loaning out Lawrence so that he can get regular first-team football under his belt.

Blackburn, Brighton and Charlton are all thought to have enquired about taking the versatile forward on loan as they look to bolster their attacking options.
