Foxes close-in on van Aanholt

Chelsea left-back Patrick van Aanholt is set to join Leicester City on loan within the next twenty four hours.

The twenty year-old Dutch under-21 international has made two senior appearances in the Premier League for the Pensioners, racking-up 27 Championship appearances on previous loan spells at Newcastle United and Coventry City. Van Aanholt's style is likened to that of Ashley Cole, surely fitting to Sven Goran Eriksson's pacey, attacking side - the Swede is keen to see the exciting young Dutchman added to his squad until the end of the season.

Meanwhile, Curtis Davies is set for a return to the Walkers Stadium having tweeted earlier today that he is "en route to Leicester to re-join Sven's revolution!" and quipping about recent signing Yakubu stealing his squad number for the Foxes, number 24. Davies, a hit in the East Midlands during his first loan spell at Leicester in the run-up to Christmas, is set to reprise his role at centre-half until the end of the season.
