Anthony Knockaert is relishing the possibility of linking back up with former Leicester team-mate Leo Ulloa at Albion in the Premier League.

The pair played together for the Foxes and could be reunited if Ulloa's intended loan return to the Amex comes off.

Knockaert told The Argus: "I played with him so I know that he is a good player obviously. He is such a great guy as well so it would be nice.

"But the players are just focussed on the football and the club knows what they need to do to get better and better. If he comes he would be welcomed and especially me, I know Leo really well, so it would be nice to have him."

Knockaert, back in the starting line-up for today's 1-0 FA Cup win at Championship promotion contenders Middlesbrough, is delighted to be in Monday night's fifth round draw with Leicester.

The French right-winger said: "The most important thing is to get through and today I think we did well. It was a typical Championship game. It's a tough place to go to. I think overall we did really well and what we needed to do, which is to go through.

"It was important to be in the next round and I am excited now for the next round."
