Brendan Rodgers wants to sign a Celtic legend who has been compared to a 100m pro ...

Matt ORiley, a Danish youngster, is believed to be interested in Leicester City's January transfer window.

The Foxes are eyeing the former MK Dons talisman as Brendan Rodgers looks to finally make some moves in the market, with Leicester being the only Premier League club to not make a single signing this summer, with ORiley now a target.

After an 18-month spell with MK Dons, the 21-year-old midfielder established himself as one of the EFL's most exciting players, before Celtic activated the playmakers' 1.5 million release clause in January to bring the former Fulham academy graduate to Glasgow, where ORiley has impressed.

ORiley has become a regular with the Hoops following Ange Postecoglou's departure. He played a key role in the Celtics' run-in that saw the Scottish giants retain the Scottish Premiership from Rangers, with their midfielders' performances now attracting interest from Premier League sides.

ORiley may one day be good enough to compete in the English top-flight, according to journalist Elliott Jackson, but the midfielder will be making a wise decision to stay in Scotland until the summer.

Celtic will be a part of the UEFA Champions League group stage, and while ORiley may be interested in joining Leicester in the Premier League, there is no assurance that the midfielder will remain a regular for Rodgers.

ORiley should reject a deal with Leicester in order to stay with Celtic.

ORiley has been a bargain buy for Celtic since joining from League One in January, and with Postecoglou making moves this summer to enhance the squad's quality ahead of their return to the Champions League, the 21-year-old would make a mistake signing for Leicester this summer.

ORiley is still in the early stages of his career, and staying in Scotland and playing regular football with Celtic is the best thing the playmaker can do this summer.
