According to a report, Leicester City may have finally made a hopefully telling decision on Nigerian midfielder Wilfred Ndidi's future. Meanwhile a rival club want to sign an out of favour Foxes goalkeeper. Stay with FoL for all you LCFC needs as we cover these stories and other media talk on this Sunday afternoon. There is another friendly for King Power supporters to look forward to as well.

Another friendly announcement for Leicester City supporters to put in the diary

The anticipation of another hopefully great Leicester campaign begins. To be honest, just staying in the Premier League would be an amazing achievement by the looks of things on Filbert Way. With LCFC's preseason schedule now taking shape - a lot later than other clubs' itineraries, it must be said - a sense of excitement will build within the Foxes fan base.

First of all, there is probably a behind-closed-doors practice meeting with Loughborough to kick things off in offseason 2024. Shrewsbury Town are also penciled in for a non-competitive fixture versus Leicester.

Now a third preseason contest is in place for the Leicestershire outfit. City will face Ligue 1 team RC Lens in the last of the summer friendlies this year. The game will take place in France on August 10. Following that, it is Tottenham Hotspur in the initial English top-flight clash of the season proper.

Two Foxes transfer rumours to digest

Speculation is in overdrive for many EPL sides at present. Big six clubs are especially under the microscope and connected with a plethora of potential deals. The chatter concerns both elite incoming and outgoing players.

Over at Leicester, there is not as much hearsay as usual. Trust me, I've covered these type of things for City for years now. The lack of supposed interest can obviously be put down to Profit and Sustainability problems. Oh, and having no manager will affect squad and signing matters as well. Now that Steve Cooper is in place at the King Power, we can all expect further links to potential acquisitions.

Keeping one player, Wilfred Ndidi, will presumably be important to Cooper. Ndidi is a fan favourite and former division-leading tackler and interceptor. Additionally, he is now a versatile midfield man in the No.8 style. Reportedly, LCFC would like to extend the Nigeria international's contract.

Elsewhere, Derby are interested in signing Daniel Iversen on loan. A permanent switch is arguably more appropriate for the stopper.
