Long-time Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is close to signing a new Foxes agreement, according to a claim. Although, the latest contract shall include a release clause, if a particular report is accurate. Will the Nigerian remain at King Power Stadium?

In addition to that likely pleasing news for the Blue Army, there is more. LCFC are actually linked with a surprising target as the east Midlands outfit seek a fourth summer signing. Will so-called 'new Angel di Maria' Matias Soule be winging his way to Leicestershire this year?

Leicester City make another transfer error

Unsurprisingly, the occasionally awkwardly run Leicester City Football Club have made another mistake. Thankfully for those of us in the fan base, this is a trifling matter and nothing serious.

However, mistakenly releasing a soon-to-be new signings first interview on YouTube before the club have officially announced him is rather unprofessional. Leicester are becoming known for these types of incidents in some circles. The Adrien Silva case is a lowlight, among other examples.

LCFC has been well-run for many recent seasons; it was once one of the best performing in the Premier League. But after the unreasonably poor relegation of 2022/23, the outfit does need to address some areas.

Many loyal fans remain unhappy with Jon Rudkin's vast power on Filbert Way. Others, myself included, have said that it is time for a newly installed recruitment chief, maybe even different scouts.

The premature video of Caleb Okoli will have some arguing for a change in the slightly stale Foxes social media. The media manager and their team should probably try harder to ensure we don't become a laughing stock.

Transfer links to versatile Juventus star loanee Matias Soule

Soule is supposedly wanted by English top-flight sides Aston Villa, Newcastle United and Serie A's Roma. Not to mention a section of Juve supporters pleading with him to stay amid transfer speculation concerning an impending exit. And you can apparently add Leicester to the long list of Soule admirers.

The Argentine can play in midfield as an extra attacking option. Though he is predominantly a right winger; his second dominant role has traditionally been as a support, or second, striker. He could well be a hit in the EPL after a fine campaign at Frosinone.
