    I bet you he'd back himself to make himself first choice.

    He would get more than enough games, even if Mendy was fully fit all the time, to justify coming here He would get more exposure which would help his international chances.

    Then there is the chance of winning trophies, working with the best coach in the world and playing for one of the biggest clubs in world football.

    Or, he could stay at Leicester and realise that the season is over already in January, again

    Indeed Leicester cup defeat may work in our favour, I also thought Zinchenko was again exposed yesterday

    Agree re Zinchenko - poor lad isn’t a left back and he’s looking very exposed. Looks good further up the pitch. Not seen enough of Chilwell to comment but Leicester will want stupid money - which will be based on potential more than anything else. Transfer market is nuts but you’ll still get better value abroad. Final general point - might be worth doing or agreeing deals now - given post Brexit the pound could fall by circa 10 per cent which will increase the cost of deals with overseas clubs significantly.

    Nether were a load of their first team players - and they are regretting that decision.

    Take a wild guess.......
    Can’t say as he was particularly impressive today. Whole Leicester defence was all over the place. Looked bang average

    I've looked at his performances closely since we were linked and I think as you say he's been very average at best for the last few games. Maybe he'd improve with our coaching, but he gives the ball away too much and his positioning leaves the centre backs exposed. Not for me, especially for the fees being banded about.

    My thoughts were the same after watching him today, he gave the ball away a lot. Maybe just a bad day at the office because he has looked decent in other games.
