Pritchard has lost his way at Spurs somewhat after impressing immensely while on loan at Brentford two seasons ago, enduring a disappointing loan spell at West Bromwich Albion last term.

The Mirror go on to say that Tottenham are happy for the 23-year-old to leave this summer.

Sky Sports claim that Ulloa is keen to leave the King Power Stadium this summer in order to play regular first-team football, yet the Swans’ opening bid has been knocked back by the Foxes.

The Argentine forward joined Leicester from Brighton and Hove Albion in the summer of 2014.

Sigurdsson has scored 18 Premier League goals in 65 appearances over the past two season.
