A Leicester City prospect who is out on a temporary basis has dispelled doubt from his boss. While this club want the loan of another Fox extended.

Matty James has endured the worst luck from any Leicester City players I can recall over the last era, or generation actually. He made a central midfield spot his own, only to be injured for the entirety of his team-mates’ miraculously incredible and unpredictable title-winning campaign of 2015/16

Undoubtedly talented, the classy King Power club naturally stuck by their unfit athlete, well, for years in fact. Now that James is fit, he wants to be playing football, obviously. However, there were limited opportunities for him on Filbert Way; he also turns 30 in the summer. Therefore a loan was the most suitable outcome for both parties.

James is currently at Barnsley, impressing the Tykes immensely as he goes about his tidy business in the middle of the park. Dane Murphy, chief executive there, has labelled the ex-Manchester United man a “great player.” Additionally, Barnsley want to keep James by extending the deal which ends in January 2021.

Josh Eppiah is another excellent prospect at Leicester, although one with injury question marks surrounding him. The Belgian Foxes Development Squad striker signed a new three-year contract before switching to sister club OH Leuven. Leuven manager Marc Brys was admittedly unsure about the 22-year-old, who the boss now sees as a big bonus for his team, as per Sport Witness.

Fulham are the next visitors to Leicester in the English top-flight. With the London outfit currently in 19th EPL position, the Foxes are clear favourites to triumph in the hopefully exciting clash. Yet

left-back/left centre-back, Christian Fuchs, believes his team-mates must tread carefully versus Scott Parker’s men. Desperation won’t be key. Fuchs rather expects a scrap and patience to hit Rodgers’ side on the break. Click here for more from the veteran.
