Foxes boss Eriksson has been looking to bring in a top-quality keeper after Wigan Athletic's Chris Kirkland recently completed a brief loan spell at the Walkers Stadium.

The Championship club made an enquiry for United No.2 Kuszczak, but the Poland international wants to fight for his place at Old Trafford.

"Tomasz doesn't want to come to us," said Eriksson.


However, Eriksson retains faith in his current keeper Chris Weale and would only bring in a 'top' replacement for his present first choice.

Eriksson added "I am only interested if he is a top, top keeper. The goalkeeper we have, Chris Weale, is doing very well for us so I am rather confident in him.

"We are not going out to buy just a goalkeeper. It must be an absolute top keeper or we will stay with what we have.

"I think the last few games Chris has played he has been brilliant for us."
