Leicester looking at free agent Holland international Dwight Tiendalli

HITC Sport understands that the experienced full-back is training with the Foxes after negotiating his release at Swansea City.

Dwight Tiendalli is training with Leicester City in the hope of earning a contract with the Foxes, HITC Sport understands from sources close to a potential deal.

The 29-year-old defender is currently available as a free agent after negotiating the cancellation of his contract at Swansea City.

That agreement was reached at the start of September, and Tiendalli is understandably keen to find himself a new club as soon as possible.

He has spent the last three seasons in British football, having been acquired by Swansea from FC Twente in 2012.

Tiendalli made 40 appearances across his first two seasons in South Wales, earning senior international recognition with Holland in the process, but slipped out of favour last term.

A loan switch to Middlesbrough in March took him through to the end of the campaign, but he is now looking to take on another new challenge.

With the transfer window closed, Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri will have to dip into the free agent pool if he is to bolster his options, and Tiendalli is hoping that he can catch the Italian coach’s eye.
