Leicester City have had a bid of £4 million accepted to Everton striker Jermaine Beckford, according to

The former Leeds forward scored 10 goals for Everton last season, but City’s need for a striker to boost their promotion bid has forced them to make a second big for Beckford, after an original bid was rejected earlier this summer.

Leicester had reportedly been interested in Nicky Maynard, but with Bristol City refusing to budge, Everton’s Beckford is now their prime target.

It has been widely reported that Everton are unable to make signings in the transfer window without selling one of their current squad.

Phil Jagielka and Leighton Baines had been linked with moves away to help free up funds, but even Beckford expected now to leave, Everton manager David Moyes is facing a race against time to secure a replacement before the transfer window shuts.
