Dundee United are set to sign Leicester striker Eric Odhiambo on loan.
Tannadice boss Craig Levein is a big admirer having worked with Odhiambo during his time at Leicester.
Foxes chief Ian Holloway is willing to loan out the 18-year-old for the rest of the season so that he can gain valuable first-team action.
"It will be a loan move," Holloway told The Leicester Mercury. "He's a good lad and I don't want to lose him.
"He might benefit from playing games."
