Leicester and Sunderland fans have spent the entire day in the Transfer Tavern discussing a potential move but it seems the saga has come to an abrupt end.
Sky Sports (14:42) report that Leicester City have rejected Sunderland’s £7.5m offer for want-away striker Leonardo Ulloa, who has refused (via his Twitter account) to play for the Foxes again and is desperate to force through a Deadline Day move.
Sunderland had already seen two bids for the striker rejected by the Premier League champions and will not be making a fourth approach, with Leicester making it clear they will not approve a sale to a Premier League rival.
Both clubs are sat in a precarious position in the Premier League table and Sunderland’s search for a striker is set to be key for the remainder of the season, with Leicester not accepting a sale as they don’t want to strengthen a direct rival.
Our landlord believes Ulloa will only move on now if he moves abroad but he feels the Argentine moved too quickly with his comments yesterday, as he’ll be sat on the sidelines for the remainder of the season if a transfer doesn’t go through today.
Leicester fans, has your club made the right decision? Who should Sunderland turn their sights to? Let us know in the comments below!
