Will Leicester City cash in or be patient with their Premier League winner

Demarai Gray joined Leicester City from Birmingham City in January 2016. A grand addition at a cut price of £2million. He has been up and down Demarai and it looks as if Brendan Rodgers has seen enough.

Gray (23) has so far this season been involved in 14 league games, and scored a single goal, but just before the PL was stopped, he had been dropped even from the squad and not been much involved.

He has allready experienced a lot and done his job, but when called up on after a good performance often vanished in the next game and been taken off and not really showed the stability Brendan Rodgers is looking for.

He had a great run a few months back, it even allerted Gareth Southgate who included him in the squad for the England friendly at King Power v. Switzerland in September 2018, but he never left the bench and still not been capped at full international level.

During the lockdown speculations have been drawn towards Demarai Gray and if he is committed to the club and ready to fight for a place in the team, or could it be that the highly talented youngster, at the moment a bit in the shadows, are off to somewhere else.

Not seen any other clubs linked with Gray and his contract is running until the summer of 2021, and that would see a move happening either now in the summer or in January as possible, and it could also be that contract talks have stalled and will not continue until Brendan Rodgers will be knowing what he has to deal with in the transfer market.

A possible addition of Philippe Coutinho on loan would of course also harm the possibility for Demarai to play as the two are competitors for the same positions. Daniel Amartey, a player that joined at the same time, almost 3,5 years ago is also out of the picture and could leave as well.
