Highly unlikely exits

Victor Kristiansen

Interest from Serie A side Lazio in the young Danish left back who signed for Leicester in January from FC Copenhagen has been reported.

Kristiansen has committed himself to the Foxes for the Championship season. This doesn’t mean, of course, that he won’t leave. Leicester are blessed with full backs with Callum Doyle, Luke Thomas, Timothy Castagne, Ricardo Pereira and James Justin able to play on the left and all probably above the Dane in the pecking order. With Castagne likely to leave, it is unlikely that Kristiansen will be sold although a loan deal is a possibility.

Wout Faes
There were rumours that the Belgium defender was unhappy with the prospect of playing in the Championship. Galatasaray are the latest club to allegedly be interested in signing him.

With a place in Maresca’s starting line-up, Faes is said to be one of the players who has been converted by the Leicester manager’s approach and now wants to stay. In any case, with so many uncertainties surrounding other Leicester centre backs, it is unlikely that Leicester, protected by the player’s long contract, would sanction a sale.

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall
Liverpool, as well as Chelsea, have been linked with the Leicester born midfielder in the past week

Dewsbury-Hall’s brace in the opening fixture demonstrated his importance to the Foxes and the club would be extremely reluctant to sell. The fact that he is contracted until 2027 means that only a ‘silly money’ offer from the Anfield or Stamford Bridge outfits would persuade Leicester to sell. That eventuality is extremely unlikely.

Jamie Vardy

Earlier in the transfer window the Leicester City striker was supposedly wanted by Everton and he turned down an offer from a Saudi club.

Given the Leicester legend’s huge salary, and his age, the Foxes would be duty bound to listen to any offers. However, the same factors militate against any bids being made. Vardy’s loyalty to the club, too, means he would certainly not push for a move.
