Leicester may extend Nathan Delfouneso's loan deal

Nathan Delfouneso

Assistant boss Craig Shakespeare says Leicester City may extend Aston Villa striker Nathan Delfouneso's loan deal.

The 21-year-old joined for a month but has been limited to four substitute appearances because of the form of Jermaine Beckford and David Nugent.

Shakespeare told BBC Radio Leicester: "We're due to speak to Villa and we are waiting to hear from them. We don't know what they want."

Delfouneso's deal is due to expire after Thursday's game at Derby County.

Shakespeare added: "He's had a bit part to play at the moment. I suppose he's' disappointed he has not had a run but that's down to the form of Beckford and Nugent."
