Everton boss David Moyes has confirmed that Championship side Leicester City are on of a number of clubs that had enquired about striker Jermaine Beckford. Reports earlier this week had suggested that Leicester had made a £3million offer Beckford, who joined Everton last summer on a free transfer from Leeds United.
However Moyes has confirmed that Sven-Goran Eriksson’s side’s offer was lower than the bid quoted by the media and that the club have no interest in selling the striker for the amount offered by Leicester.
“Leicester made an offer which was £2million, I think people reported it was £3million,” said Moyes.
“This wasn’t anywhere close to our valuation, there’s been a couple of offers for Jermaine Beckford but none of them have really got to the point where it might makes us think about it.”
Leicester City have already been the biggest spenders in the Championship, signing players such as: Kasper Schmeichel, Paul Konchesky, John Pantsill and Darius Vassell.
