Bruma, PVA to Germany; Naughton signing "unlikely"

Chelsea's Patrick van Aanholt and Jeffrey Bruma look set to sign for German teams in the next few days, leaving Sven Goran Eriksson again chasing defenders as he looks to re-build his Leicester City side.

Bruma and van Aanholt both made loan appearances for the Foxes last season, but Bruma is understood to be on the brink of moving to Hamburg on a two-year loan, with fellow Dutchman van Aanholt expected to join him in the Bundesliga.

Meanwhile, with Premier League clubs circling, Tottenham Hotspur's young right-back Kyle Naughton looks set to remain in the top flight, scuppering Foxes fans' hopes that he would be signed by Leicester.

Eriksson believes that newly-promoted Queens Park Rangers will bid for Naughton and Harry Redknapp may still want to give the England Under-21 right-back a run in Spurs' first team.

"It will be expensive to buy him," said Eriksson, "He is a great player and I am sure it is not only us that want him. I am quite sure he has had offers from the Premier League as well. I don't know if we will miss out on him. It is too early, but we will keep trying."
