Huddersfield Town have had an approach to sign Shinji Okazaki rejected by Leicester City, according to a report from the Telegraph.

The Japanese forward has seen game time limited in the Premier League this season and has been linked with a move away from the King Power Stadium.

The striker’s contract at Leicester expires at the end of the season, meaning that he could be on his way out of the Foxes soon.

However, Leicester have rejected an initial bid from the Terriers for the forward, as reported by John Percy of the Telegraph.

Okazaki joined Leicester in 2015 and was a key player in their famous title-winning season.

The striker has scored 14 league goals since joining from Mainz of the Bundesliga for a reported £7 million fee, but he has failed to net at all so far this season.

The initial bid may have been rejected, but Leicester could be open to another bid if Huddersfield remain interested in the Japanese international.
