Chris Wood is one of our former foxes and of course a among the favorites at Turf Moor with a previous life the The Clarets.
Danny Drinkwater is another player that has made a move to Burnley this season, joining on loan from Chelsea. Ben Mee is a third who is currently at Burnley and has been in both camps, playing for Leicester City as far back as in the 2010/11 season.
Michael Keane who spent time on loan at Leicester City being the partner of Wes Morgan in most of the 2012/13 season, later had a good time at Turf Moor and from there joined Everton in a big money fee transfer. Leicester City loaned Keane from Manchester United who let the talented defender leave.
Going back a number of years you find Andy Lochhead who was a forward at Burnley and Leicester in the 60’s. A tall forward who could score goals. Steve Thompson, a midfielder, playing during the 90’s at Leicester City and Burnley and of course not forgetting Ade Akinbiyi, the forward who had a bit of a troubled stay at Leicester City, but at Turf Moor he did well and even returning for a 2nd spell.
Leicester City and Burnley are also clubs of former Iceland international Joey Gudjonsson. We also have Frank Sinclair who had a great time at both clubs, and always gave it all during a very long career. Frank joined Burnley from Leicester in 2004 and added up a total of 256 league games for both clubs.
Few might remember Winston White from his days at Leicester City, being ironically one of the first black players to appear in a first team at the club. White spent his early days in football at Leicester City and had a spell at Burnley in his 30’s.
It might be a few more going later back in the archive, but as far as we have seen these are the names to count.
