Claude Puel shakes up his squad as Ahmed
Musa and Leo Ulloa both departs King Power on loans, other could
also follow, with a number of former foxes also in the list of
Leo Ulloa will be playing for his former club
Brighton until the end of the season. A real possibillity to get
more games and be part of first team action. Ulloa (31) will most
certainly be seaking a permanent move away from the club in the
Ahmed Musa is another fox returning to his former club, and has
agreed on a loan back to CSKA Moscow. Another player who has fallen
totally out of the picture at King Power and looks out of the future
plans of Puel.
Andy King could be leaving as well, with Middlesbrough, Brighton and
Sunderland all mentioned as possible destinations for the long
servant, who is in a difficult competition with other players for
the central midfield positions.
Kelechi Iheanacho is linked with Newcastle, but few believe he will
leave. Islam Slimani could be leaving, and a number of options has
been mentioned. Newcastle, Everton, Chelsea, Sporting and Watford
are all linked with the Algerian international.
Recent rumours about Riyad Mahrez and his desire to move, will
probably not come as a shock for anyone, but it looks strange if
Puel lets the player leave in this window, but again if Man City is
ready to splash the cash and reach a bid of around £ 80 million, who
Other former foxes has also been on the move. George Taft, who left
City back in 2014, is now extending his loan from Mansfield to
Cambridge and the former England U.19 international hopefully will
add to his 10 appearances so far at The Abbey Stadium.
Franck Moussa has agreed to a deal with Gillingham, after being out
of football since his release from Walsall in the summer. The
Belgian played 8 league games for City from 2010 to 2012, after that
he has been a bit around at a number of places. Still only 28 years
Former City youth prospect, Curtis Thompson has made a new loan move
from his club Notts County. The 24 year old midfielder will play for
Wycombe Wanderers for the rest of the season.
Linked winger Jack Harrison will not join Leicester City, and has
agreed to a move to Manchester City and a straight loan to
Middlesbrough. At the moment it looks a bit silent on the "coming
in" front, and it might be that nothing happens.
The only signing so far is Fousseni Diabate, who made his debut in
the FA Cup v. Peterborough. He scored a great goal and is just the
type of signing we believe is right for City, not splashing out
cash, but picking the right talent at a good price from a smaller
Robert Huth and Matty James are both back to full fitness, so is
Danny Simpson. Adrien Silva is also a "new man" that adds quality to
the squad, and it could really be looked up on as "new signings",
but we just have to wait and see if Puel will do more business
before the window close tomorrow.
