Leicester City fans in the Transfer Tavern have had plenty of reasons to sink pints in celebration this season and they’re bringing in the rounds this evening after the latest comments from their manager.
After the Foxes blistering start to the new Premier League season, stars like Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and Jeffrey Schlupp have attracted a lot of attention from top-sides. However, Claudio Ranieri has insisted none of them will be allowed to leave in January.
Speaking specifically about star-striker Vardy, The Daily Express quote him as addressing the astronomical comparisons to Neymar.
“We don’t sell Vardy. He’s very happy here. Nobody goes in January. Not him, not Riyad [Mahrez], not [Jeffrey] Schlupp.”
“It’s too early to talk about Vardy along with Neymar. I hope he can improve. If he can continue it’ll be fantastic.”
The Leicester fans are giggling when imagining Vardy alongside Neymar, understandably so, but are ecstatic that their star-men will not be sold on for a profit.
Leicester fans, what’s a realistic target this season? Let us know in the comments below!
