No secret to see the move of Cesare Casadei go through, of course very exciting news. He will join from Chelsea on loan for the rest of the season and hopefully be in the squad for the game against Huddersfield away on Saturday.

Earlier this year, he was included in the Italian squad that took part in the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Argentina. Having helped Italy reach the final, as the Azzurrini eventually lost to Uruguay, he received both the Golden Ball and the Golden Boot awards, as the most valuable player and the top scorer of the tournament with 7 goals.

This is a raw diamond and one that also knows life in Championship as he last season had a loan spell at Reading, playing 15 league games and scoring 1 goal. Coming to Leicester will of course be a step up, and he will have better players around him, that he had with The Royals, but still valuable experience to bring in when joining another club at the same level this season.

This move will of course question the future of Bouba Soumare, Wilfred Ndidi and Dennis Praet, all of them fighting for the same job. Harry Winks, Hamza Choudhury and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall are other midfielders available at the moment.

Enzo Maresca has been eager to use Wilfred Ndidi in an offensive midfield position, also played Dennis Praet among his chosen once, as well as giving a start to Hamza Choudhury in the Carabao Cup, doing well alongside Harry Winks, who is, in no doubt, the most certain pick af all his midfielders, also one that looks get a lot of trust is Kienan Dewsbury-Hall.

Recent talk about Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall being a target for both Liverpool and Chelsea, looks at this point totally out of question, as KDH absolutely needs this season and Leicester needs him, so we do not believe he will be on the way out in this transfer window.

Bouba Soumare looks to be moving on, and it would not be a surprise if one more midfielder, either Dennis Praet or Wilfred Ndidi will be on their way out, but still very uncertain about that, keeping everyone will not be a good decision as it will just be too may players in contention for places.
