What else can we expect? One certain departure is Belgium full-back Timothy Castagne. He has not figured in Enzo Maresca’s first-team plans so far and a move has been mooted for some time now. At the time of writing, it is being reported that Fulham are close to securing his services. Seemingly on the way out too is left-back Victor Kristiansen who is said to be close to a loan move to Italian Serial’s A side Bologna.
A likely departure, too, appears to be Wilfred Ndidi. Earlier in the window Nottingham Forest and Celtic were said to be interested although the fee likely to be insisted upon by Leicester probably puts the Scottish club out of the running. Over the weekend, Forest are said to have firmed up their interest and, if TalkSPORT is to be believed, they have already agreed personal terms with the player who is, it is said, keen on the move.
Foxes fans will be somewhat ambivalent over the Ndidi news. Once regarded as one of the best defensive midfielders in Europe, his form has deteriorated substantially in the last couple of seasons. Nevertheless, Ndidi has been given a new lease of life under Maresca, featuring in the all the games so far as a box-to-box number eight. Whilst never looking entirely convincing, he does seem to be growing into the role. Having said that, Dennis Praet and Cesare Casadei would appear to be more natural fits for that position.
