Premier League newcomers Leicester City are keen on signing West Ham United defender Guy Demel, according to the Daily Mail.

Demel, 33, remains under contract at Upton Park but manager Sam Allardyce is contemplating allowing the veteran right-back to join the Foxes on a free transfer.

The former Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund defender joined the Irons from Bundesliga side Hamburg in 2011 and has since made 75 league and cup appearances for the club.

A regular last term, the Cote D'Ivoire international made 32 Premier League appearances for the Irons last season.
