LEICESTER CITY have been offered a site for a new 40,000-seat stadium - free of charge. Lifelong Leicester fan Tom Wheatcroft has held detailed talks with the club about the site although its location has not been specified.

Wheatcroft, who owns Donington Park racetrack, said: "I will give away the land for free because I want everyone to enjoy sport and I want to help. There would be no benefit for me but I've held two meetings with the club and it's an ideal spot."

The club have been considering leaving Filbert Street, their home since 1891, with capacity there limited to 22,500.
