Championship sides Stoke City and Nottingham Forest are both interested in signing Leicester City midfielder Andy King on loan, according to journalist Phil Cadden.

The Potters and Reds will be eager to add to their squads before the transfer window closes later today, but the loan market will remain open for the rest of the month.

Stoke are keen to bounce back to the Premier League at the first time of asking under Gary Rowett but were beaten 3-1 on their Championship opener by Leeds United.

Forest fans have more expectation this term than they have had in a while, with the City Ground outfit showing ambition in the transfer market over recent months.

King is a fringe figure at Leicester and the veteran midfielder leaving the King Power Stadium to join either Stoke or Forest would not be a surprise.

It remains to be seen whether this deal will be concluded today, with the journalist stating that Swansea City and Cardiff City are both also interested in King.
