Leicester City are keen on Ronan Darcy from Bolton Wanderers. According to The Sun, Leicester will explore the possibility of poaching Darcy from Bolton.
Darcy made his Bolton debut last season in the Championship and he is highly-rated by the club. Given the League One side’s financial instability, Darcy was given some first-team opportunities earlier this season.
The 18-year-old, who plays in attacking midfield or as a striker, has played seven games this season. This includes four starts in the league. But he has now dropped down the pecking order after Bolton had a flurry of deadline day business following their takeover.
Nevertheless, Darcy has already opened his account in senior football. The teenager got on the scoresheet in the EFL Cup loss against Rochdale.
Leicester have had scouts watching Darcy in action this season and a move could be on the cards. The Foxes are reportedly considering a move in the January transfer window.
Darcy is one of the rare few who benefitted from Bolton’s ownership issues. With some senior minutes under his belt already, he will be eager to get back into the team.
Leicester could be an interesting career move for the young Trotter. Given their reputation for promoting youth into the first-team, this could be an attractive destination for Darcy.
