Former Preston loan star Daniel Iversen faces another Leicester City blow with goalkeeper Bartlomiej Dragowski allegedly heading for the King Power Stadium.

Iversen became a fan favourite at Deepdale after arriving on loan in January 2021.

Signed to help cover for Declan Rudd’s injury, Iversen ended up becoming one of North End’s best loan signings in recent memory.

The Dane was simply ridiculous in the Championship last season and was deservedly named as Preston’s Player of the Year having extended his six-month deal by a year.


Preston fans will have been keen to see Iversen feature in the Premier League this term, especially after Kasper Schmeichel’s move from Leicester to Nice.

Instead, Brendan Rodgers has bizarrely placed his faith in Danny Ward, who has looked out of his depth for most of the Premier League season.

Iversen even took his chance in the Carabao Cup by saving three penalties in a shootout win over Stockport County, but Rodgers has strangely stuck with Ward.

Preston supporters are still even calling for Iversen to be given a chance but his hopes of first-team action with Leicester may now take another dent.

Polish news outlet Meczyki report that Spezia goalkeeper Bartlomiej Dragowski is joining Leicester in the January window.

They claim that the deal is already agreed and Dragowski will be heading to the East Midlands as soon as the winter window opens.

Dragowski, 25, only joined Spezia in August as he arrived from Fiorentina.

A proven Serie A goalkeeper and Poland international, Dragowski would seemingly arrive as Leicester’s new first-choice goalkeeper to replace Ward.

That may simply serve to push Iversen further down the pecking order and leave him to consider a permanent move away – especially having been so good last season.

A route back to Preston is closed off now with Freddie Woodman in place, but we’re sure that Iversen will show his quality if given a chance, whether that’s with Leicester or another club.
