Riyad Mahrez not the only Leicester City player with exit plans in the summer



Claude Puel made a number of hard decissions during the January transfer window, and he has to do the same in the summer, trying to build a competetive squad with happy faces

To see Andy King, Islam Slimani and Leo Ulloa together with Ahmed Musa, joining Kapustka and Mendy in the group of players out on loan, was not a big surprise and the "cleaning job" had to be done, but you have to find the right blend.

All of these players will return to the club in the summer, and they are all looking for game time, and that looks more or less impossible. So a number of transfers will probably take place in the summer and no surprise if all six of them will all be leaving.

Dragovic and Benalouane together with Robert Huth are other names uncertain, and the fact that Puel now looks certain on the use of Ben Chilwell, Fuchs looks a bit in limbo as well.

Daniel Amartey is also looking for more game time and is not happy with his current situation. The Ghana international with 22 caps for his country at the age of 23 is looking for more than a game whenever Danny Simpson is out injuried.

Amartey who impressed heavilly in the African Nations Cup and was named in the all star team of the tournament surely is a target for other clubs and Stuttgart were reported to be close to a move in the summer.

Andy King, who TCF rates highly, is one player I feel would be the ideal squad member and his presence is far more important than Matty James, who is one player Puel and also Shakespeare admires, yet to see why in competition with other players.

Surely quality midfielders such as Adrien Silva and Vicente Iborra are both looking for a more settled first team experience, than the one they have at Leicester at the moment, both coming to Leicester to play important roles, instead they are often on the bench.

Everyone expected Silva to be involved and be the player to replace Danny Drinkwater, but so far James is the player used. To see the former Sevilla captain Vicente Iborra not getting to play regularly is also strange, he is quality through and through.

Kelechi Iheanacho will not either settle with the role he is playing at the moment and Demarai Gray is also a demanding a place in the team, and should be playing, but out of position. Gray is a pacy flank midfielder not a centre forward, please stop the nonsence.

We just have to wait and see who will follow Mahrez out the door at the club during the summer, but Puel needs to qucikly find his way forward or else he could be in a very difficult situation in the summer, with too many players uncertain about their first team chances.
