For a number of former foxes and loan players, listed in our section, where are they now, and, on loan, you can keep up to date with them all. Always nice to take a follow up and many of those players in action last weekend, we have taken the following tour.

Derby started their season at home playing Huddersfield. Two former foxes were in action with Curtis Davies scoring and also Richard Stearman in the Derby line-up. Stearman came up against his former club and with the struggles over the summer to get in quality players, Wayne Rooney made it clear that he was satisfied with a point.
Admiral Muskwe made his debut for Luton in their grand 3-0 home win v. Peterborough. Muskwe who recently joined after his release at Leicester, came on as a sub late second half. Cedric Kipre was in the starting line-up for West Bromwich in their late Friday 2-2 away opener v. Bournemouth.
Daniel Iversen had to see four balls behind him after a terrible season start coming on early on and taking over the gloves from an injured Declan Rudd after just 13 minutes. Preston were leading 1-0 at the time, but with four goals scored by Hull it became a nightmare evening for the Leicester man on loan. Greg Cunningham was another former fox in the Lillywhites line-up.
Millwall, with Gary Rowett as manager, started their season away to Queens Park Rangers. George Thomas came on late in the game and did secure a draw, both goals in the game were scored in the first half. Coventry also did well and Mark Robins must have been pleased with his pupils, one of them newly signed Martyn Waghorn playing all 90 minutes in the 2-1 v. Nottingham Forest.Embed from Getty Images
