With the European transfer window and EFL domestic loan window slamming shut imminently, Leicester City manager Claude Puel will be feeling the pressure to sort out any potential outgoings as soon as possible.
Puel’s Leicester have got their season off to a solid start, they were unlucky to lose at Old Trafford, before turning over free-spending Wolverhampton Wanderers at the King Power Stadium.
The Foxes look to have settled into the season well. In particular, James Maddison has been a highlight in the Royal Blue. After shining in the Championship, he has looked well and truly at home in the Premier League. The 21-year-old capped off his excellent performance against Wolves’ with a goal.
However, the same cannot be said for certain players at Leicester City, who are struggling. Puel is under time pressure to get rid of any players not fitting into his plans.
With that in mind, here are two players who must be moved on imminently…
With the depth Leicester City have at centre-back now, the pressure is building on Puel to find a way to move on the Jamaican if he no longer feels he is good enough to fight for his place.
Morgan has a job on his hands to show the French manager what he can do in training if he wants to justify his place in the squad.
Signing centre-backs the standard of Jonny Evans and Caglar Soyuncu from Freiburg is going to make a difficult for the 34-year-old Wes Morgan to nail down a place in the first-team.
If he’s not happy to play back-up, Puel only has a limited time left to sort out the future of the Premier League winning centre-back.
Very much on the fringes of the Foxes squad, surely it is time Matty James is moved on.
The 27-year-old midfielder should be in the prime of his career, but he made just 13 Premier League appearances last season. Perhaps he is not the standard of the modern day Leicester City player, but he needs to move on from the club for first team football.
Time is running out for James to find a route away from the Midlands club.
