N'Golo Kante hints at Leicester City move

Caen midfielder N'Golo Kante hints that Claudio Ranieri's appointment as Leicester City manager could persuade him to join the Foxes.

Caen midfielder N'Golo Kante has hinted that the appointment of Claudio Ranieri as Leicester City manager could persuade him to join the Foxes.

The 24-year-old Frenchman has been linked with a move to the King Power Stadium, with reports suggesting that the two clubs had agreed a fee.

Kante has confirmed that he is in talks with several clubs, amid reports also linking him with Marseille and Arsenal.

However, when asked if Ranieri's appointment could potentially sway his decision, he told French radio station Tendance Ouest: "It's already something important that they have a coach now, and a few days ago I didn't know what Leicester was like, as there was no coach.

"Today, for sure, it's an important factor."

Ranieri succeeded Nigel Pearson as Leicester boss on Monday.
