Leicester City manager Paulo Sousa targets Robert Koren

Leicester City manager Paulo Sousa is eager to sign Slovenia international midfielder Robert Koren.

Koren, 29, helped West Brom win promotion to the Premier League last season but was released in the summer.

Sousa told BBC Radio Leicester: "He can play in two different positions - as a wide man and inside. He shoots from outside [the box], right foot and left.

"He has a good understanding of the game, is a good passer and makes good decisions. I would like to have him."

And Sousa has also reiterated his desire to keep striker DJ Campbell.


Campbell spent most of last season on loan and played a key role in helping Blackpool win promotion via the play-offs.

The Tangerines were eager to keep him, but Sousa wants the former Birmingham City man to stay at the Walkers Stadium.

"We have a good offer for DJ," Sousa said. "But he feels happy in the club and part of the club. He wants to play in the Premier League of course - but with us."
