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."
