According to reports, Leicester City are now seeking the signing of a defender. This speculation emerged after a transfer embargo placed on the Foxes was lifted by the Premier League in their infinite wisdom.

In addition to covering that story, FoL take a look at a forecast for next season's English top-flight division table. Where will the east Midlands outfit finish, and is the prediction realistic?

Leicester City's EPL 2024/25 end position prophesied

'Will the Foxes end up relegated in the upcoming campaign' is probably the question currently on people's minds. The Blue Army will be especially nervous as preseason gets closer with no manager and now limited staff in place. Trust me, I can attest to the concern.

Then there are the inevitable high profile exits, which we can unfortunately expect. Hopefully Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall is not one of the stars sacrificed. Yet I would be unsurprised if the midfield maestro was forced to leave; other standout players could well be sold too. That is if LCFC continued making a mess of their books. That myopic vision caused the Financial Fair Play (Profit and Sustainability) predicament in the first place.

When all of this is resolved (with the hope that a competent head coach and helpers eventually arrive), the Leicester faithful will finally be able to look forward to some signings. With any luck! And that element has received a boost this week. But more on that later. First of all, let's see what is predicted for the King Power group.

Yorkshire Evening Post carry a story about next year's EPL table. And it is not good reading for the Leicester fan base nor its hierarchy. Basically, LCFC are expected to be demoted back to the Championship. And, worryingly, it is anticipated that the Leicestershire side will finish bottom in 20th place. Great!

Foxes monitoring Tottenham Hotspur outcast

In spite of LCFC's legal case against them, the Premier League have ended the club's transfer restrictions. A move previously speculated by journalists and reported here at FoL. This development means that, once some notable outgoings transpire, Leicester can sign players again like everyone else.

And it seems the Foxes are wasting no time in getting down to business. They have purportedly joined Leeds United, Southampton and Ipswich Town in seeking the signing of forgotten Tottenham centreback Joe Rodon. The Wales international has one-year remaining on his THFC contract; he is not in Ange Postecoglou's plans.
