Foxes scout checks out top Croatian clash

Leicester City sent a scout to watch the top-of-the-table clash in Croatia on Sunday, as they scout for emerging talent.

Arsenal and Manchester City also had representatives present to watch a number of promising individuals in the ranks of Dinamo Zagreb and Hajduk Split clash in Croatia's 'Eternal Derby'.

The match finished 0-0, with Hajduk goalkeeper Lovre Kalinic making a couple of crucial saves to earn his side a valuable away point at the Maksimir Stadium.

Kalinic, 26, was denied a work permit in January after Aston Villa agreed to sign the 6ft 7in Croatian international.

Leicester were reportedly interested in him last year but the Foxes have since signed Ron-Robert Zieler and handed first-choice goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel a new five-year contract.

Scouts from Borussia Dortmund, Borussia Monchengladbach, Ajax, Juventus, Roma, AC Milan, AZ Alkmaar, PSV, Benfica, Sporting Lisbon and Spartak Moscow were also in attendance.
