Reports linking Lucas Digne and Todd Cantwell with Leicester is as cold as we have described the rumour. From the source to count, Fabrizio Romano, you have no indication that Leicester are in the race at all.
Chelsea are also said to be out of the Digne race with Aston Villa being the favorite to land a move for the player and with Cantwell no one doubts the hottest candidate to be are Newcastle.
Leicester are mentioned a bit around but at the moment it looks as if a new signing will have to wait with a great number of players still at the club and not really seeing anyone getting shipped out. Ryan Bertrand and Papy Mendy are two players that could have been seen as possible departures, but with Bertrand injured and Mendy in the AFCON they are not really hot as transfer targets at this moment.
The answer Brendan Rodgers got from Hamza Choudhury, playing him in the back alongside Jannik Vestergaard was such that he might see possible changes inside his own squad to deal with his current lack of players in different positions.
Ricardo Pereira has earlier been mentioned as a possible target for Atletico Madrid, but at this moment he also looks far from leaving being out with a fractured leg.
Filip Benkovic is a player that looks to be troubled and he looks to struggle with issues of form and minor problems as he is left out of a squad for a game naming two goalkeepers on the bench. No real update on the situation regarding the Croatian international who looks finished at the club.
Sadly we are not looking at much change in the squad with only one loan signing possible as you can just have two players on loan at the same time, four players in total can be loaned in, but we could see one coming, but few at this moment mentioned.
Lucas Digne and Todd Cantwell are off the list and soon seen as lost cases in a chase that we believe was never on at all, but of course everyone can show an interest. In these two transfer talk of possible signings other clubs looks looks more desperate and ready to offer the player a robust and good deal both financially and from a sporting perspective giving the players good hope of steady week in and week out match action.
