Callum Elder: Set to be rewarded with new deal

Leicester City defender Callum Elder is on the verge of signing a new deal at the club, sources have told TEAMtalk.com.

Elder, whose current deal expired this summer, is highly-rated at the King Power Stadium and talks over a new deal have been going on for several weeks.

The left-back was spotted playing in Australia by Leicester and he left his homeland at the age of 16 to make the move to England.

Elder has come through the youth ranks at Leicester, but is yet to make his first-team debut for the Foxes.

The Australia Under-20 international has enjoyed loan spells at Mansfield and Peterborough in the last 18 months making 21 appearances for the Stags and 18 for Posh before injury cut short his stint at London Road.

A number of Championship and League One clubs have expressed an interest in taking Elder on loan for next season and once the player signs a new deal at Leicester the Premier League champions are expected to sanction a season-long move for Elder to allow him to get valuable first-team action under his belt next season.
