Looking a bit more on what happened in the January transfer window we did see a number of former foxes making moves. Liam Moore has been reluctant to a further extension to his contract at Reading and decided on a loan move to Stoke.

Nathan Delfouneso who had a short loan spell at Leicester a few years back made a loan move from Bolton to Bradford. Chris Wood moved from Burnley to Newcastle. Luke O’Neill did a return to EFL with his move from Kettering to Stevenage.

Fans might be dissappointed to see no additions coming in, but as we have said so many times before with a limited 25 name list you are just tied to stay cool as you cannot sign players and just leave out players for the fun of it. You also need to act seriously as players of international quality and capacity cannot just be fooled and left out in the freezer.

What we did see with David Silva in earlier years and what happened to Nampalys Mendy this season, you will not really pick up many points as a club. Doing those type of errors could cost you as players will be reluctant to join they will be treated this way coming in.

Nat Phillips and Todd Cantwell were both linked to Leicester but as TCF said too soft to be happening but of course a surprise to see those two players join Bournemouth, but all to understand as they will not compete with their current club and be helping another rival in a relegation battle or in games against you. Nat Phillips might have been closer to a move but with the limit on 25 players and no one on the way out it would have been difficult again to handle this situation leaving out other players.

Lucas Digne and Phillipe Countinho were both seen as possible Leicester targets but both ended up at Aston Villa with Christan Eriksen making his return to Premier League with Brentford.
