Leicester fear Tottenham's Kyle Naughton is too costly

Leicester City boss Sven-Goran Eriksson fears that Tottenham may price right-back Kyle Naughton out of their range.

Naughton, 22, made a big impact during an eight-month loan spell at the Walkers Stadium last season - and Eriksson is keen to sign the defender.

Eriksson told BBC Radio Leicester: "It's possible to take Kyle but he is extremely expensive.

"The club wants too much money for a defender but of course, he is a great football player. We'll see."

Naughton, who joined the Foxes in November, has made 36 appearances, scoring five goals.
