Jannik Vestergaard is a player of grand international status as his presence for Denmark is rated to the highest points by national coach Kasper Hjulmand.
Denmark do often play with three in the back with Vestergaard having his two greatest strengths in his game, headers and passes. Played alongside good partners and given a role suited to his style he will shine.
Jonny Evans and Wesley Fofana are both on the highest level of Premier League standards, Caglar Soyuncu and Daniel Amartey are steady alternatives for their countries Turkey and Ghana. To also see the progress of Ben Nelson you do have alternatives of great quality.
Vestergaard is at an perfect age (29) and a player that we have not seen shine in a Leicester shirt. The key for Vestergaard is to play week in and week out as he was used to at Southampton, BM Gladbach, Werder Bremen and Hoffenheim.
Leicester need to address a certain style and not expose their back four in the way they have done in the past and needs to find the perfect engine room in midfield to not fall into a trap that will see Vestergaard falling flat with his pace being his major fault.
Leicester tend to stay higher in the field than Vestergaard is used to and to be battling in a sprint against the fastest forwards in Premier League will not be nice to watch. We cannot see the real use of Vestergaard at Leicester as we cannot see him perform in the way he is used to.
He is a player that can shine for Leicester and be a weapon on corners and of course be drilled correctly at set pieces we all know how important his height could be.
Brendan Rodgers has not yet settled a system to use as he juggles his players around something that would see Vestergaard exposed as he from previous seasons is used to a drilled system and being played alongside a player that goes deep and as said better in a back three.
To see him as a fifth alternative at Leicester is sad but still competition is massive as we do believe that Barcelona or Bayern Munich would suit him better. Brendan Rodgers might be ready to offload the Danish international.
