It is abundantly clear Brendan Rodgers does not rate Daniel Amartey and the Ghanaian is on his way out of the Foxes as he failed to play a single game in the Premier League for Leicester City last season.

Following his involvement in most of their pre-season games it appeared Amartey had been handed an olive branch by the Northern Irish coach but that is not the case.

Fulham are trying to lure Leicester City defender Daniel Amartey to Craven Cottage according to a report.

Football Insider claim the Cottagers have approached the Foxes about the availability of the Ghanaian who, it is claimed, could leave the King Power for £5m.

Amartey has struggled to feature in Brendan Rodgers' first-team plans, a problem not helped by injuries.

Fulham boss Scott Parker is said to be an admirer of the defensive midfielder and tried unsuccessfully to land him during the January window.

But they are now determined to get Amartey at the second time of asking with the player having two years remaining on his current deal.

Amartey, who signed for the club for £6m from FC Copenhagen four years ago,  did feature for Leicester in pre-season in a friendly draw against Blackburn Rovers but has not played in a competitive game under boss Brendan Rodgers.
