There are some major developments in Leicester City's pursuit of notable manager Graham Potter for Foxes of Leicester to discuss with the Blue Army on Wednesday afternoon. Meanwhile midfielder Harry Winks is relishing the opportunity to prove himself against his former side, Tottenham Hotspur. FoL also comment on an expert's surprise concerning the King Power club's points deduction case. Let's get straight down to it with much to cover.

Harry Winks asked about Leicester City's Premier League season opener

Winks was undoubtedly one of the instrumental facets of one-time LCFC boss Enzo Maresca's 2023/24 Championship setup. The holding player did a great job in the middle for Leicester over the recently expired campaign.

The 28-year-old even supplied a couple of goals in a staunch 45 league appearances that term. He is also, of course, one of the fan favourites in the squad. And a recent quote will have the collective faithful's mouths watering in anticipation of kick-off on August 17.

Even though the English top-flight fixture list is not published until Tuesday, June 18 at 9am, the England international is looking ahead with a particular match in mind. During the east Midlands outfit's media rounds of late, Leicester stars were asked which side they would preferably face in the initial game.

Naturally, Winks selected his boyhood team: Tottenham. I am sure that he still has a soft spot for Spurs. And I wouldn't be at all shocked if he wanted to prove them wrong with respect to his own talents.

Why LCFC points deduction news has finance expert Stefan Borson surprised

Leicester's looming Profit and Sustainability judgement has supporters worried. Which is rather obvious. So, is there any news on when something may transpire?

Stefan Borson has written that reports of delays are "strange". The financial specialist wonders why the hearing has not yet taken place or even been publicly announced. There is a chance, it is suggested, that proceedings might not perhaps reach culmination until 2024/25 has begun.

Significant claims regarding the chase for a new Foxes boss

We all know that City don't actually have a manager at present, which, coupled with Financial Fair Play issues, is a real concern. However, the club will be working in overdrive and on overtime in order to appoint the right man. Luckily there have been some updates this week. Let's hear what the supposed latest on Graham Potter is:

"Leicester make contact with Graham Potter as the former Chelsea boss emerges as a serious candidate to succeed Enzo Maresca"

There is more:

Leicester City have long held an interest in Graham Potter and the decision at Old Trafford to prolong Erik ten Hag's stay could help their bid to convince him to join"
