Birmingham boss Alex McLeish has said that there is no truth in the rumour that Kevin Phillips is on his way out of the club and heading for Leicester in a £750,000 move.

There has been reports linking Phillips with being the man the Foxes want to boost their attacking options just before the new season starts.

But McLeish said: ‘Nobody has approached us. It’s just designed to keep the papers selling.’

Leicester are now said to be concentrating on signing Leroy Lita from Reading instead.
