Leeds United have made a renewed bid for Max Gradel after seeing their initial offer rejected, skysports.com understands.
The Ivorian forward has just spent three months on-loan at Elland Road.
He returned to The Walkers Stadium earlier this week, but Leeds are now looking to bring him back to West Yorkshire in a permanent deal.
Leeds made an offer to Leicester earlier this month, and that has now been rejected.
But Simon Grayson has wasted little time in upping his offer for the 22-year-old.
