Looking up former players, managers and different people related to Leicester from the past, makes an interesting read. We have taken a new tour around to explore special happenings and updates to a few of them.

Callum Wright is one that has experienced a roller coaster ride since he left Leicester for Blackpool and later made a new switch to Plymouth, seeing his clubs being involved and relegation and promotion, and next season he looks to face Leicester in Championship action.

Hamza Choudhury had a good season with Watford, but had to see the play-off zone from a bit of distance ending the season as number 11. Choudhury looks to return to Leicester with confidence and seen as one who could get a chance to play a part next season.

Marc Albrighton is also set for his return playing on loan since January for West Bromwich, also being on the fringe for The Baggies, ending 9th. Albrighton have another year left on his contract.

George Hirst had his loan spell at Blackburn cut short, not really able to impress much, but going down a tier and spending time at Ipswich helped him return to form and play with the same confidence he did at Portsmouth the season before. Coming back to Leicester in the summer, but still a bit uncertainty regarding his future. Ipswich are back in Championship and will face Leicester next season.

Callum Davidson had to see his time as manager for St. Johnstone come to an end after a struggling end to the season. He left his position in April, being at this post from 2020, winning the Scottish Cup and League Cup.

Ayoze Perez joined Real Betis and has since his return to Spain done his business, scoring 2 goals in 18 games, also playing in Europe this season, scoring at Old Trafford against Man Utd. His contract at Leicester is out and looks finished at the club.

Crystal Palace escaped a relegation battle under the guidence of Roy Hodgson, and with Jeffrey Schlupp in the team and Paddy McCarthy part of the coaching staff. Schlupp (30) has since his arrival from Leicester in 2016, played a total of 179 league appearances, scoring 16 goals, playing in different postions and this season being involved 34 times in league action.

A difficult season for Chelsea with three former foxes in their squad, Wesley Fofana, Ben Chilwell and N’Golo Kantè. All of them struggling with injuries. Chilwell played 23 league games, Fofana 15 league appearances and Kantè just 7 outings in Premier League.

Harry Maguire has also had a struggling season at Man Utd, being involved in most of the action, but still seen as fringe by his new manager Erik Ten Hag. But still been involved in 31 games in all competitions.

Jesse Lingard has been released by Forest, playing 20 games in total. Another loan star Harry Kane, has again finished a trophy less season with Tottenham, and might consider other options in the summer.

Elliott Moore has reached 134 games for Oxford in total since joining from Leicester in 2019. Moore (26) will also next season play in League One, finishing 19th and avoiding relegation with a 2 points margin.

Liam Moore had to see his Reading relegated to League One, but has come to an impressive tally of 219 games since joining from Leicester in 2016. He has also been the captain of The Royals and been on loan at Stoke during his years with the club.

We had waited to see Danny Drinkwater finding a new club after his Reading loan last season came to an end as well as his contract with Chelsea. But since he left The Royals nothing has happened, but still he hopes to find a new club to play for and has not retired.

Shinji Okazaki is still going at the age of 37, playing for Sint Truiden in Belgium alongside many other Japanese stars. He was in action 28 times in the league this season, scoring 2 goals.

Andy King and Matty James did their job at Bristol City being part of Nigel Pearson’s new build at Ashton Gate. Both having key roles at the club as they also looks to be facing Leicester next season. King (34) and James (31) helped The Robins to a 14th position.

Chris Wood ended his loan spell with Forest playing only 7 league games and scoring 1 goal. He will probably look for a new club next season as the New Zealand international again can contribute in the best way possible.

Coventry lost their play-off final with former Leicester forward Mark Robins as boss. He has also decided to let Martyn Waghorn leave on a free, and could be snapped up by another club, spending the end of last season on loan at Huddersfield, helping them survive.

Layton Ndukwu is back in England and joined non-league club Barwell after a period in Albania with Kukesi. He also had a loan spell at Southend during his years, but still very little first team game time for the former Leicester player now in the non-league pyramid, placed in tier 7.

Admiral Muskwe has been retained by Luton for next season. However, a decision to sell or send him on a loan again can still occur in this transfer window.
