Rushden & Diamonds hope to strike a deal to bring Leicester striker Chris O'Grady back to Nene Park for the rest of the season.

O'Grady's previous loan deal expired when the transfer window re-opened at the beginning of this month.

But Rushden boss Barry Hunter is desperate push through another deal for the 20-year-old, who has scored four times in 25 appearances for Diamonds this season.

"I speak to Leicester regularly about Chris to keep us in the picture about what is happening," Hunter told the Northamptonshire Evening Telegraph.

"He's in their squad at the moment and they feel he has definitely improved since he joined us. But I want to get him back by whatever means."

Hunter is also hoping to sign Barnet's transfer-listed goalkeeper Scott Tynan, after being frustrated in his attempts to land Brighton's Michel Kuipers.
