English Premier League hopefuls Aston Villa are unlikely to sign Leicester City striker Leonardo Ulloa on a permanent deal in the summer even if they choose to renew their interest in the player.

The 31-year-old Argentina born hotshot is expected to leave the King Power Stadium after falling out of favour with the former English Premier League champions.

Ulloa is thought to have been a loan target for Sky Bet Championship club Aston Villa during the January transfer window however the player returned to former club Brighton & Hove Albion on a loan deal until the end of the season.

Villa could opt to renew their interest in the Argentine frontman in the summer, particularly if they win promotion back to the English Premier League however The Sun have reported that Ulloa is keen to join former club Brighton & Hove Albion on a permanent transfer once his loan deal with The Seagulls expires.

Ulloa bagged 26 goals in just a season-and-a-half during his first spell at the Amex Stadium while he got off the mark in his second spell in the 3-1 FA Cup Fifth Round win over Coventry City on Saturday.

The striker struggled to make a positive impression with new Leicester City boss Claude Puel resulting in the player being pushed towards the exit door at the King Power Stadium.
