While world football is suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak, players are nearing the end of their contracts, which means Premier League clubs will have a number of free agents, with their future still up in the air.
Let’s take a look at top 5 Leicester City players, who’s contract expires this summer.
Showing an impressive game under Claude Puel, Mendy failed to sparkle after Youri Tielemans’ arrival at King Power Stadium.
While the club boss Brendan Rodgers focusing on the attack-minded rather than defensive midfielders, Mendy found his playing time limited, having made just 4 league appearances this term.
In spite of his January transfer rumors, the player is likely to leave the Foxes in summer, with Rodgers planning to imrpove the squad.
Expected to leave the King Power Stadium, Fuchs gained another extra year by impressing the club boss.
He managed to back-up for Ben Chilwell this term, hugely contributing in the City’s game. The defender has made 14 appearances in all competitions.
Fuchs is on his way of becoming a free agent, though Rodgers will likely to be looking for keeping him for a year.
Like Fuchs, Morgan was also given an extra year to show his skills. And it turned out to be a right decision, with the player showing strong defensive performances and scoring wins over Burnley and Bournemouth last season.
However, this campaign didn’t turn out to be a good one for him as he made 14 appearances in all competitions, starting just once in the Premier League.
Now 36, Morgans’ contract ends this summer. However, the club manager will decide to keep him in the squad as a key player.
After memorable 16 years, 378 appearances, 62 goals, and titles in the top-three tiers, King is nearing to his club exit this summer.
The midfielder joined the Foxes back in 2004. Since the start of 2018, he has played just two games with Brendan Rodgers’ side. He moved to Rangers with a loan deal at the start of the season. Now he is playing for Huddersfield Town, making just one league appearance so far.
It is unlikely he would return to King Power Stadium at the end of the season.
Since joining the Foxes from Hull in 2017, the City’s third-choice goalkeeper has only made 4 appearances for the club.
The Bosnia-born keeper has played Under-23s football this term, only featuring in one game.
Jakupovic will be likely to leave the club in search for more playing time, while Leicester are likely to focus on their young goalkeerpers like Daniel Iversen or Viktor Johansson.
