Foxes of Leicester offer opinion after reports of a Leicester City star receiving a transfer offer from a club in Saudi Arabia. Jannik Vestergaard personally revealed the bid. In the meantime, the towering Fox also spoke about his pride at being recalled to the Denmark National Team.
The Vestergaard renaissance is quite something. I think the football world will have generally watched on happily as the imposing defender made his way back into the Leicester setup. Not to mention that the Dane solidified himself in the LCFC starting lineup, with the Foxes top of their Championship division. As a byproduct, the impressive Conor Coady has been left by the wayside as he returns from injury. Big things were/are expected from the former Wolverhampton Wanderers man. But Coady hasn’t really had the chance to show what he can do in a Blue shirt whilst the ex-Southampton footballer shines.
But how close did the 31-year-old come to leaving the Leicestershire team? Vestergaard has disclosed some information on his recent experiences, along with interest from abroad. He says an unnamed Saudi side came in for him – but that money isn’t everything and that he only makes the best choices for his career.

Again, this is a lovely thing to hear from an athlete who was previously unhappy. Even if Vestergaard did decline perfectly good – most likely – opportunities to leave King Power Stadium when he was out in the cold on Filbert Way. I suggested that he should leave in my articles; in fact, I often questioned signing the centrehalf in the first place. I suppose Vestergaard proved most, if not all, of us wrong. The player said it was really nice to be back. And best of luck to him from FoL.
