Premier League Champions Leicester City are already eyeing up their latest signing from Non-League.

Stafford Rangers’ Josh Gordon signed for the Foxes earlier this month and now they’ve handed a trial to Kidderminster Harriers striker Andre Brown.

The 20-year-old started in Leicester U23s 2-2 draw at Reading on Monday night.

The talented youngster has scored 14 times in the Vanarama National League North this season as Kidderminster aim to secure an immediate return to Non-League’s top flight.

Brown, released from Crewe Alexandre a year ago, signed a contract extension last month to keep him at Harriers until the end of next season.

Kidderminster chairman Colin Gordon told the club’s website: “Leicester approached me a few weeks ago, they came to watch the right-back for Nuneaton at the time, and went away talking about Andre.

“They made an approach, he played a game that was behind closed doors against Northern Ireland U23s, did well, scored two goals and they asked him to go back and went down to the game against Reading.

“He did okay, they quite like him. They see what we see; he’s potential, purely potential. I would argue that potential would be better developed here and in a years’ time he could be a lot closer to the real deal.

“At the moment, he is purely potential. His goal record is phenomenal for minutes on the pitch.”

Brown will be available for Kidderminster’s home game against Bradford Park Avenue on Saturday.
