CHERRIES have been linked with a beat-the-deadline move for Leicester City winger Demarai Gray.

Sky Sports this morning reported the Foxes had rejected a £25million bid from the Dorset club.

Gray, a long-time target for Cherries boss Eddie Howe, has become unsettled at the King Power Stadium due to a lack of game time.

However, with Leicester expected to sell playmaker Riyad Mahrez it is unlikely they would want to part with Gray as well.

Daily Echo sources suggest Cherries have been told Leicester do not wish to sell the England under-21 international.
