Young Chelsea defender Levi Colwill is wanted by Leicester City and Southampton

The defender, who is a product of Chelsea’s academy, was loaned to Huddersfield Town in the Championship last season as the Terriers narrowly missed promotion to the Premier League.

Colwill played 32 games on loan at Huddersfield last season and helped the team to the play-off final before losing 1-0 to Forest at Wembley, scoring an own goal.

The Blues are looking to bolster their rearguard this summer through a reshuffle following the departures of Antonio Rudiger, who has signed for Real Madrid, and Andreas Christensen, who is on his way to Barcelona.

But the defender has sparked interest from elsewhere in the Premier League as Leicester, Southampton and Everton keep an eye on the youngster.

Southampton have strong ties to the Blues after signing Tino Livramento last season and Armando Broja on loan.

Saints have already grabbed two young players this summer in goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu Manchester City and Armel Bella-Kochap of German club Vfl Bochum.

Meanwhile, Leicester is also interested, but must discharge Vestergaard before making a move.

The 29-year-old endured a difficult debut season in the East Midlands after his £15million move and has struggled at times to side with Brendan Rodgers.
