Aleksandar Tunchev has returned to Leicester after a successful loan spell with Crystal Palace.

The defender made ten appearances for Palace before suffering a groin injury towards the end of the deal.

The 30-year-old Bulgarian did enough, though, to impress Palace boss Dougie Freedman and he is hoping to bring him back to Selhurst Park in January.

Freedman said: "I've not drawn a line through Tunchev returning. We'll try to get him back in January.

"I'm hoping we've done enough as a club in the way we've treated him that we can do something if Leicester don't want him."
