A number of Premier League clubs are reportedly 'monitoring the situation' of Leicester City defender Caglar Soyuncu.
The Turkey international has only made one appearance this season, which came in the defeat against Manchester City last month. City boss Brendan Rodgers appears to have lost faith in Soyuncu this season, despite the defender playing a total of 41 games last season.
A long-term future at the King Power Stadium is unlikely with his contract running out next summer. Given Soyuncu's current situation at the club, Wolves, Southampton and Aston Villa are understood to be monitoring the situation, according to journalist Ekrem Konur.

Turkish side Besiktas have also been linked with the 26-year-old in recent weeks, and a January loan move is understood to be a possibility.
Rodgers, who previously spoke highly of the defender, said: "When I arrived and I saw him in training, it became clear that he was a very good player. Over those first few months, the longer I was here, the more I could see his quality.
"What impressed me about him is that the club had two very good defenders ahead of him in Harry Maguire and Jonny Evans. At one point he was fourth choice because you had Wes Morgan coming in too. But that would not affect him. He was still very good in training."
