Fryatt Set for Walkers Stadium Exit

Matty Fryatt's Leicester City career is set to end as he is rumoured to be looking at a deal that will see him move to rivals Nottingham Forest before tomorrow's Football League loan deadline.

In a prospective deal that will shock Foxes fans, the 2009 top scorer is believed to be close to signing a loan deal for Forest with view to a permanent move, according to BBC Radio Leicester's Ian Stringer.

The 23-year-old had been linked by the Independent with a move to Hull City in order to team-up with former Foxes boss Nigel Pearson, but Stringer believes Fryatt's move will not see him move quite so far from home. The striker has also coveted interest from Southampton and the Premier League's Wigan Athletic.

The Nuneaton-born striker has scored over 60 goals and made nearly 170 appearances for Leicester since his move from Walsall in 2006, and during the Foxes' promotion-winning season in 2008 became the first Fox since Arthur Chandler 83 years earlier to score consecutive hat tricks on his way to a record-breaking 32 goals.

In other news, former England goalkeeper Chris Kirkland is tipped to sign for Leicester, according to the BBC. The out-of-favour Wigan shot-stopper was due to sign last week but that deal was put on hold as Barwell-born Kirkland picked-up a virus.
