Leicester will search for talent day in and day out as they are looking for reinforcement for their squad going forward. The latest player to draw attention is young Birmingham City midfielder Jordan James.

The 18 year old recently became a full Wales international making his debut in the Euro qualifier vs. Croatia. He is a player that has progressed a lot this season and could be following in the footsteps of Jude Bellingham and Demarai Gray as young talented players moving on to a higher level.

Leicester will of course not be alone in this chase with also Italian club Bologna said to be eager. For “JJ” it will be important to get into a team that can see him develope as a player and not move on to a club that will just see him as a fringe alternative.

Leicester will be in need of reinforcement in the summer, but still a long time to go, before anything is settled for the club as a relegation battle is on. We all know the way forward for Leicester and that is to explore local areas as they made English internationals out of James Justin and James Maddison coming in from Luton Town and Coventry City.

Birmingham City has a reputation for bringing forward players of grand quality, and they are with JJ hoping for a good and solid transfer fee if anyone are in chance of getting a move done.

Jordan’s father Tony James played as a central defender for clubs such as Hereford United, Burton Albion and Newport County in a career lasting for 17 years in lower league football. He has been influential in the development of his son from a very young age.

Leicester will have to monitor carefully in front of next season with Youri Tielemans and James Maddison both certain to be on their way out of the club, both being reluctant to commit their future to the club.

Still early days and far from any summer transfer window opening, but if you are interested you can alway follow up on all rumours in our fresh and updated hot, cool and cold list of targets.
