Leicester City fans will undoubtedly be delighted with the news that midfield star Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall will sign a new long-term contract.
This apparent news may, indeed, be the most satisfying the Blue Army get for the entire summer. Yes there are fantasy signings that would be, literally, unreal for the Foxes. Yet in the real world – away from Erling Haaland and Darwin Nunez, unfortunately – securing Dewsbury-Hall on an extended deal is marvellous for the supposedly cash-strapped LCFC.
While there will be other incomings for the East Midlands side this summer, transfers are always a gamble. And that sentiment applies to leavers and joining players. With regard to a minimal budget on Filbert Way, the typically ultra-reliable John Percy stated that Leicester’s war chest is minimal, sadly.
The revenue of King Power International Company LTD – the business of LCFC owner Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha – was drastically affected over the main pandemic years due to a lack of commerce in certain areas. This is arguably the reason not quite so much investment is expected for fresh athletes.
Members of the faithful criticising ownership for not spending ridiculous cash on reinforcements do not really understand the regularly discussed model employed by LCFC. Watching the exemplary movie moneyball would assist with comprehension, here. Without being hypocritical, I recommended openly that reinvestment is necessary – but my expectations are far from delusional.
Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall’s Leicester City contract report
OK, let’s now look at the report for more details about Dewsbury-Hall; whose current agreement expires in two years. FanSided affiliates 90min claim ‘KDH’ – as he is fondly and concisely known by the Leicester support – will soon sign ‘a new, long-term Leicester City contract’.
The reason why this information will be music to the Foxes faithful’s collective ears, is that the midfield dynamo is a future captain of the team. Furthermore, the outlet states that the club was not able to convince Youri Tielemans to re-sign. Although they have separate qualities, KDH’s emergence certainly softens the likely Tielemans blow.
