Leicester City are hoping to land Portsmouth midfielder Gary O'Neil on loan.
Pompey manager Harry Redknapp is keen for the 21-year-old to sample regular first team football and is willing to loan out O'Neil.
Micky Adams' Leicester are believed to be one of two Championship teams who are keen to take O'Neil on a three-month deal.
O'Neil captained England's Under-21 side against Ukraine on Tuesday evening and is on the fringes of the Portsmouth side.
But Redknapp is not yet willing to send the youngster out on loan until he has drafted in a replacement.
