Chesterfield are hoping to host the Premier League champions this summer.

The Derbyshire Times understands Leicester City’s visit could take place on 2nd August at the Proact.

Leicester are due in Stockholm a day later to face Barcelona, which suggests the game against Chesterfield wouldn’t feature first team stars like Jamie Vardy or Riyad Mahrez.

The Spireites have already confirmed a home game against Derby County, in what will act as a testimonial match for Shane Nicholson.

The first team’s away friendlies will take place at Matlock Town, Ilkeston and Buxton.
