Is the current Leicester City squad in fact the most valuable in the contemporary English Football League Championship? Yes, apparently it is.
There was a slightly intriguing recent article from The Lancashire Evening Post, in which the outlet detailed the most expensive rosters of the English second division. Of course, they did so with the help of the instructive Transfermarkt. So how does the top of the list look?
Right, Leicester lead the supposed cost table, with their combined set of players valuing £218.3million. Incidentally, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall and Wilfred Ndidi are respectively and strangely both priced the highest at an exactly the same £21.6m. It is not strange that the pair are rated highly, but that they have the same fractional estimate. Predictably, Southampton and Leeds United closely follow the Foxes.
New Leicester City fan favourite Kasey McAteer reportedly set to commit international allegiance to Republic of Ireland
Kasey McAteer is really on the minds of Leicester fans at present. Championship defenders are probably also thinking quite a lot about him. If opposition defences do not consider McAteer before playing the Foxes, he invariably causes problems. The winger is easily one of the brightest aspects of an LCFC side glittering with talent and in-form players at the moment.
If Leicester make it to the 2024/25 Premier League, which is highly likely, McAteer will probably earn more attention whilst becoming a success. He has actually played very briefly in the English top-flight. And he’s already catching the eye of a qualifying national outfit.
The forward-thinking English second tier star, who’s been with the east Midlanders since the age of eight, is apparently in the process of committing his international future to Ireland. Foxes of Leicester suspect McAteer will do well at the ultimate level of sport, too. We wish him well.
