Leicester City midfielder Andy King is undergoing a medical at Huddersfield Town on Wednesday ahead of a proposed loan move to the Terriers, a report from Football Insider has claimed.
Having graduated from Leicester’s academy in 2006, King has gone onto to make well over 350 appearances in all competitions for the Foxes, and was part of their side that famously won the Premier League back in the 2015/16 season.
King has however fallen down the pecking order at the King Power Stadium recently, having spent time out on loan with the likes of Swansea and Derby recently.
The Welshman’s most recent loan, which saw him spend the first half of this season with Scottish side Rangers, came to an end earlier this month, although it appears his return to Leicester will be a brief one.
It was revealed on Tuesday that Huddersfield were interested in a move for the midfielder, and it seems as though things have moved quickly with this potential transfer, with the latest reports claiming that King is now set to undergo a medical ahead of a loan move to the John Smith’s Stadium until the end of the season.
The Terriers, who currently sit 20th in the Championship standings, four points clear of the relegation zone, are next in action when they host promotion-chasing Brentford on Saturday afternoon.
King’s contract at Leicester is set to expire at the end of this season, which will allow him to leave the club for free this summer.
It is thought that Huddersfield have beaten off interest from several other Championship sides to secure the 31-year-old’s services for the rest of the current campaign.
This could be a really good piece of business for Huddersfield.
When you consider the experience that King has, and the level he has played and trained at with the likes of Leicester in the past few years, he will surely have the know-how required to give the Terriers the lift they need to climb away from the bottom three in the coming months.
The fact that they have also overcome interest from elsewhere in the Championship is encouraging, given it shows they are still an appealing prospect to potential transfer targets, despite their current precarious position in the division.
