In the wake of Leicester City ending the 2022/23 Premier League in the 18th position with only nine wins in 38 games, the Foxes saw the team relegated back to the Skybet Championship for the upcoming 2023/24 season. With the club’s departure from the English top flight, the team has already said goodbye to several players that made up the starting eleven.
To prepare for the upcoming campaign, Leicester City has only been able to welcome the arrival of one player while several are still linked to part ways with the King Power outfit. In this article, we will be looking at the few confirmed transfers done by Leicester City.
Harry Winks Arrives from Spurs
Harry Winks is the first official signing of the summer for Leicester City as they prepare to strengthen the club ahead of the 2023/24 season in the EFL Championship, and the foxes’ fans will love to place bets on the club on cá cược thể thao William Hill where they’ll get some bonus ahead. This transfer deal was announced this weekend by Leicester City, and it was reported that the Foxes bought the England international from Tottenham Hotspur for a fee of £10 million this summer.

Conor Coady Arrives From Wolves
Conor Coady became the second signing of the summer for Leicester City as they continue to strengthen the squad ahead of the upcoming campaign. Coady was announced by the Foxes on the same day as Harry Winks with just a few hours apart.
Reports have it that Conor Coady was signed by Leicester City for a fee of £7.5 million from Wolverhampton Wanderers, plus £1 million add-ons. Coady will be a great fit for the Foxes as he will be bringing with him ample experience of the English top flight football to a team that will be fighting to return to the Premier League the following season.
Conor Coady joined Wolves in the summer of 2015, and he went on to play a pivotal role in helping the club achieve promotion to the Premier League two seasons later. For the 2022/23 campaign, Coady played for Everton on loan from Wolves, and he helped the Toffees survive relegation with his 24 league appearances, and he might just be able to help the Foxes achieve promotion back to the Premier League.
Coady is the first confirmed arrival for Leicester City but he will not be the last.
James Maddison Departs Leicester City
On June 2018, Leicester City announced the signing of James Maddison from Norwich City for a fee reported to be around £20 million, and the rest is history. Ever since he arrived at the King Power Stadium, Maddison has almost managed to drop impressive performances in his games for the club.
While playing for Leicester City, the England international has been linked several times away from the club due to his skills. With Leicester City relegated from the Premier League, it is only natural that top clubs will come crawling back for the player. On June 2023, James Maddison signed for Tottenham Hotspur for a fee reported to be £40 million from the Foxes. During his stay at the King Power Stadium, Maddison was able to lift one FA Cup and the FA Community Shield.
Harvey Barnes & Others could be on their way out
During the week, Harvey Barnes was linked with a move away to West Ham United, who won the UEFA Conference League. Barnes displayed impressive performances for the club in the 2022/23 season for Leicester City as he scored 13 league goals in 34 appearances, but that couldn’t help the club escape relegation. According to the reports, West Ham United are already in the advanced stages of the potential signing of Barnes.
Barnes, however, isn’t the only one with links taking him away from the King Power Stadium. There is also Patson Daka and Kelechi Iheanacho, who are both linked with a move to AS Roma. Youri Tielemans, Caglar Soyuncu, Daniel Amartey, Nampalys Mendy, Ryan Bertrand, Ayoze Perez and Tete have all been confirmed to be leaving the club this summer.
The summer only just started, and there have been several links pointing in and out of the King Power Stadium. However, Leicester City will be looking to achieve promotion back to the Premier League as soon as the end of the 2023/24 campaign, but their choices of transfer this summer may be pivotal for the long-term performances of the club in the EFL Championship.
