Foxes Snare Czech Striker

Leicester City have secured the signing of Czech striker Roman Bednar on loan from West Bromwich Albion.

The 27-year-old becomes Sven Goran Eriksson's fourth loan signing as he looks to bolster his attacking options. Bednar joins amid calls from Foxes fans for a new goalscorer following a 2-0 drubbing at Bristol City at the weekend.

The Czech striker has netted 30 goals in 85 Baggies appearances, having made a £2.5 million move from Hearts. He will be eligible for selection on Monday for the local derby against Forest.

Meanwhile, rumours surrounding Foxes' chairman Milan Mandaric's expected departure to struggling Sheffield Wednesday have been fuelled by speculation that he is within days of completing a deal. According to the BBC, the Serbian tycoon will become a major shareholder in the League One outfit, necessitating his resignation as Chairman at the Walkers Stadium. We will bring you more news on Mandaric's situation as it is received.
