West Bromwich Albion have made a bid for England Under-21 star Joe Mattock, skysports.com understands.
The Baggies are looking to bolster their options at left-back following the departure of Paul Robinson to Bolton.
Now Baggies boss Roberto Di Matteo has made his move and has opened talks with Leicester about Mattock.
Mattock has come through the ranks at the Walkers Stadium and, despite only being 19 years old, he has made over 70 first-team appearances.
Mattock played a major part in Leicester's League One title-winning campaign last term, but now the Baggies are confident they can seal a deal for the youngster.
