Sources: £40,000-a-wk player undergoing Huddersfield Town medical today
Leicester City midfielder Andy King is undergoing a medical today at Huddersfield Town today, Football Insider understands.
Terriers manager Danny Cowley has moved to sign the 31-year-old as he looks to add some experience and guile to his struggling side to boost their survival hopes.
A Huddersfield source has told Football Insider that the club have agreed to sign King on loan for the rest of the season.
They have fended off interest from a number of Championship sides in the Wales international.
King is well down the pecking order in Brendan Rodgers’ side and he has spent the last two year out on loan at Swansea City, Derby County and Rangers.
He was at Ibrox for the first half of this campaign but the season-long loan was cut short at the midway point at the start of this month.

This allowed King, whose £40,000-a-week contract at Leicester expires in the summer, to find a new club.
He is keen to be playing regularly in the second half of the season as he looks to enhance his chances of making Wales’ squad for this summer’s Euro 2020 finals.
King is now set to become Huddersfield’s third signing of this transfer window following the arrivals of Richard Stearman on a free transfer from Sheffield United and Emile Smith Rowe on loan from Arsenal.
King has made 375 appearances for the Foxes, scoring 61 goals from midfield.
