In demand: Leicester are interested in Fulham's Stoor

New Leicester manager Sven Goran Eriksson is set to make countryman Fredrik Stoor his first singing.

The Swedish defender is desperate to leave Fulham after making only a handful of appearances since his £2.2million move from Rosenberg in the summer of 2008.

Stoor enjoyed a successful loan spell at Championship rivals Derby last season and the 26-year-old is believed to be prepared to go on loan again in search of first team football this campaign.

'We will see what happens,' Stoor's agent, Per Jonsson, told Expressen.

'Fredrik likes it in England and London. But we'll keep our eyes open for different alternatives.

'Fredrik, of course, wants to play games and get better - everyone can understand that.'

Eriksson could secure the 26-year-old's services on a loan deal initially with the view to a permanent move in January.
