Leicester City have confirmed they hope to sign striker Lee Morris before the transfer window closes from Division One strugglers Derby County.
The deal is subject to a medical at The Walkers Stadium, as The Foxes look set to add a new face to their squad on Monday afternoon.
The move will come as a surprise following Sheffield United's ongoing interest to bring the former Bramall Lane trainee back to the club.
Neil Warnock's side had agreed a fee with The Rams for Morris but no deal had been completed personally with the young hit-man.
Despite The Blades' interest, the 23-year-old has decided to snub a return to his former club in favour of a move to The Premiership with Micky Adams's squad.
Meanwhile, Leicester have recalled defender Gerry Taggart from his loan spell at Division One side Stoke City.
Adams has decided he needs the services of the former Northern Ireland international following Saturday's 5-0 drubbing at the hands of Aston Villa.
Taggart was coming to the end of a second month on loan at The Britannia Stadium, having made eight appearances for The Potters since arriving in December.
With Taggart leaving Stoke, Potters boss Tony Pulis has recalled young defender Brian Wilson from his loan at Division Three club Cheltenham Town.
