A starting Leicester City defender wants to leave the east Midlands club during the current transfer window. You can’t really blame wantaway Wout Faes if teams in Europe’s top five leagues wish to sign him – he has his career to consider. Although, he wasn’t a particularly good Foxes signing. Could the Belgium international have done more or been better at King Power Stadium and elsewhere for the Foxes?
So far we have supposedly had Victor Kristiansen, James Justin and potentially Patson Daka committing to Leicester for the Championship campaign. I cannot think of any other Foxes who have confirmed or alluded to staying. Few athletes, like Timothy Castagne, actually had the gall or, as I see it, mild disrespect to publicly discuss their desire to depart LCFC.
Look, if a National Team representative wants to go, I understand that is a valid and prudent pursuit. But just do it quietly and thank staff and fans on your way out. Others like Wilfred Ndidi are said to be more than willing to leave Leicestershire. Meanwhile Jamie Vardy, Kelechi Iheanacho and Daka are respectively linked with switches. Now it is claimed that Faes is seeking a new side; Galatasaray’s name was mentioned. the Belgian won’t go down as a classic acquisition.
Another Leicester City defender may be on his way out of the club, but Victor Kristiansen might perhaps still come good for the Foxes
Talking of Kristiansen, even though he declared himself ready for a gruelling season he is heavily connected with a possible switch to Italy. In spite of an apparent determination to help the east Midlanders return to the glory of Premier League football, Lazio of Serie A are a potential suitor. The Italian outfit supposedly have a ‘verbal agreement’ with the leftback, who is a promising young talent.
