Leicester, Norwich and West Brom want Stoke's Jon Walters

Leicester have joined Norwich and West Brom in the race to sign Jonathan Walters from Stoke City, according to Sky Sports.

Norwich have already failed with two bids forWalters, who handed in a transfer requeston the eve of deadline day.

And it is understood the Canaries have competition from a third Premier League club, believed to be West Brom, as well as Leicester, who have now made an approach.

None of the interested clubs has yet matched Stoke's 3million valuation of the Republic of Ireland international, and the club are believed to be reluctant to let him go without signing a replacement.

That could yet happen, as it is understood Stoke are in negotiations over a potential deadline-day deal.

Mark Hughes said at the weekend he would prefer to keep Walters, who is in the final year of his Stoke contract.

"He knows my feelings - we want him to stay," the manager said. "Norwich did make a bid but it was nowhere near our valuation of what Jon gives us, so that was sent back very, very quickly."
