Suffering Leicester City star Demarai Gray is likely to move to a Premier League rival for free, as he isn’t playing and his contract is expiring.

Demarai Gray has supplied a few moments of quality while at Leicester City. Some instances were more momentous than others: for example, the goal at Cardiff City directly after beloved late chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha died tragically in a helicopter accident at the site of King Power Stadium. No Fox will ever forget Gray hitting the extremely emotionally charged winner that day. Even if it is ultimately time to now say goodbye.

That outcome won’t be because of how the wingman has handled himself. No, he is a solid professional. However, the inconsistency, a lack of focus as well as desire and general end product all contributed to the 24-year-old’s downfall on Filbert Way. Being disregarded for Europa League service was revealing.

Demarai Gray’s future is not at Leicester City

In recent times, Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers said his player is indeed talented – we all know that fact. Additionally, the manager confirmed that with his deal ending at the end of this campaign, signing a new one is ‘up to him [Gray]’. Essentially meaning the club were happy to keep him, within reason – but Gray is stalling.

However, the Express is now claiming that the former-Birmingham City man is set to join Jose Mourinho – a known admirer – at Tottenham Hotspur in summer 2021 on a free transfer.

Leicester achieved another fine feat on Thursday evening by qualifying for the knockout stages of the UEL. Thanks to a 3-3 draw in Portugal versus Braga. They managed to do so with two matches remaining of their Group. This will inevitably and favourably give chances to periphery personnel along with youthful players in the squad. Which allows some of the crucial team members to have a much earned rest in this difficult and fatigue inducing season.
