Leicester City are set to grow their scouting network for the 17-23 age group.

The club have advertised vacancies for two part-time scouts, one working in the north of England and another in the south.

Recruitment for the Under-18 and Under-23 sides is currently overseen by former Birmingham City scout Tom Thacker, who joined the club in January 2017.

Both new scouts will be expected to cover games at Category One to Category Four, as well as tournaments and international fixtures. They will also build their own network of contacts in their respective areas.

Meanwhile, Metropolitan Police defender Lucas Ness (17) has been on trial with the club recently.
