We have less than a week remaining of the currently active January transfer window. The month is almost over and it has been a fairly quiet market, presumably in the wake of Financial Fair Play threats and punishments. Leicester are reportedly being careful with respect to prospective incomings due to FFP restraints or concerns.
However, team boss Maresca would like to get someone new through the door on Filbert Way. The ex-Manchester City staff member has confirmed as much. Maresca says that an additional midfielder would be ideal. The end of Chelsea up-and-comer Cesare Casadei's time at LCFC is further justification for the gaffer's position.
Foxes expert Jordan Blackwell of Leicester Mercury claims that Stefano Sensi is the acquisition Maresca wishes for. Happily, the journalist suggests that should an LCFC sale transpire, a move for Stefano Sensi can be completed. Blackwell confirms Inter Milan are content to relinquish the 28 year old footballer. In addition to that statement, the reporter does not believe an agreement will be difficult to reach once Leicester have the necessary funds.
Which players have come back to Leicester City and who's left?
First of all, Luke Thomas's loan with Premier League outfit Sheffield United was terminated. So the youthful but promising leftback returned to his parent club. Although, Thomas is unneeded at LCFC and has now promptly joined Middlesbrough, again, temporarily.
While out of favour goalkeeper Daniel Iversen has gone to Stoke City for the time being, Alex Smithies has retired. And Ethan Fitzhugh permanently moved to Banbury United
