Hello Ed's, do you know if there's any interest in Harry Maguire?

{Ed002's Note - When Arsenal started looking at Chris Smalling I did tell you that interest may leave with AW, but being English gives him an advantage and that Harry Maguire might be a better solution - and Arsenal opted for the tubby Greek Sokratis Papaoomowmow. I know HM scored today so the MOTD fever will be spreading. By the morning the Liverpool fans will have convinced themselves on Twitter that he is "nailed on". West Ham - there will be "bids gone in". But in reality, Leicester have no need to sell and probably won't even if there is interest.}

Thanks Ed, great work once again from you!

shaquiri of stoke city is looking to move on with leicester reportedly readying a large move for the player to replace the outgoing riyad mahrez

Reading rumours from the Guardian that City want Mahrez. Could any of you eds perhaps confirm/ deny? :)

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware but will try and check.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jan 2018 19:22:04
Ok, I'm looking forward to it! :)

{Ed002's Note - So (a) the transfer request was made prior to Manchester City showing interest with the intention of seeking a move to London. (b) Manchester City has approached Leicester. (c) An offer has been made that Leicester has said no to - and they have suggested they would sell if the offer were doubled.}

31 Jan 2018 11:23:51
Okay, thanks a lot for the detailed reply! Really hope they don't get him, however, I would love to see him at Chelsea ;)

27 Dec 2017 23:34:02
Ed002, possible to ask if any interest in Vardy or Mahrez?

{Ed002's Note - None and Spurs may have a residual interest.}

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jan 2018 18:15:26
What clubs are interested in Mahrez and would LFC be open to see him leave in January.

{Ed002's Note - Possibly Arsenal and possibly Spurs but I don’t think he is first pick for either. For the right offer a move is possible.}

20 Oct 2017 22:04:03
Hi eds any insight into who is going to be the next manager at Leicester?

{Ed001's Note - last I heard was that they wanted Tuchel or Ancelotti.}

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Oct 2017 09:25:02
interesting cheers ed1, could you see either happening, I have always thought tuchel was a bit over hyped.

{Ed001's Note - both are out of work, both would be happy to manage in England, but Ancelotti would want too much money, in wages and to spend, I believe. It would not be a surprise if they just brought Pearson back though, odd as that is.}

Hi eds,

Just wanted to pick your brains a bit. Apparently Adrien Silva's registration was 14 seconds too late according to Sky. Do you guys know what will happen now? Will he remain a Sporting player and move to Leicester in January, or will he be a Leicester player but unable to play for them until January? Or perhaps will FIFA make an exception (personally think that's unlikely)?

Also, just as an aside, what do you think of Adrien Silva as a player and will he be a good fit for Leicester/ the Premier League?

Appreciate that's a lot of questions, so thank you in advance :)

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Sep 2017 15:49:54
He is a Leicester player, but one who is unregistered. If it was getting close Leicester and Sporting should have asked for an extension but didn't. They will appeal and should win. Milan and Spurs dropped the interest they previously had, but he is certainly an adequate player. }.

06 Sep 2017 19:03:36
Thanks a lot, Ed, that clears things up. Have a good day :)

31 Aug 2017 21:33:43
Hi ed with the window coming to a close (thankfully) is it looking increasingly likely that Mahrez will remain with Leicester?


{Ed002's Note - not right now Dave.}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Sep 2017 16:57:11
where do u expect him to end up?

31 Aug 2017 07:34:36
Hello eds,
Just seen on bbc that Mahrez has been allowed out of national camp with Algeria to finalise a move. Also they state Roma as an interested party who have now moved on.
So which team (s) interested in Mahrez?


{Ed001's Note - Roma are still interested and were still in negotiations last night, so I don't know if you have misread or the BBC are just wrong (again). They were the only team that were in talks when I went to bed last night but Arsenal and a couple of others are still interested, including Monaco. As I was in bed early to prepare for today, a lot could have changed I have to admit.}

Agree1 Disagree0

31 Aug 2017 07:47:19
BBC had an article saying Roma bid 32m, which was turned down and now they have moved on. They were probably wrong then ed1.

Also ed do you think Man United might look to him? Some outlets say we might but I don't think we are interested in taking him.


{Ed001's Note - last I heard from the player's side of things, he was pushing to make the move to Roma happen, which is why I would be very surprised if it was anyone else, despite the interest from elsewhere. He is really keen on playing for Roma, not sure why, hateful fans there who should have long ago been banned from European competition.

Man Utd is a very outside chance, Jose wants a wideman, but it was Perisic's ability to cover left back as well that made him so interesting. However Man Utd have had him watched a number of times, so it is not entirely out of the question.}

31 Aug 2017 07:48:24
Also ed1 which players are Leicester looking to bring in before the transfer deadline?


{Ed001's Note - centre back is their main priority and offloading a few, in particular Musa.}

31 Aug 2017 07:57:05
Thanks ed1.
I think they will land Evans for CB but I think they need a CM as well and I am quite surprised they haven't signed one yet and not linked to any as well ( I know they were in for Krychowiak)

{Ed001's Note - I would not be surprised if they turned to Mamadhou Sakho for the defence, as Citeh are likely to outdo them on Evans. They do need a centre mid, but I don't know who they are after, they might just have decided that they will be ok with Amartey moving into midfield, which is where he prefers to play, James, Ndidi and the other lad who is injured and his name completely escapes me right now. The one who was actually their first choice ahead of Kante but they couldn't get so brought him in afterwards instead.}

31 Aug 2017 08:06:44
Nampalys Mendy ed? If so I too had forgotten about him until reading your reply.

I just hope Evans doesn't sign for Citeh.


{Ed001's Note - that's the lad! Really good player, though Ndidi slotted straight in and made it easy to forget him.

It does seem the most likely as West Brom need a replacement and Pulis likes Mangala and Sakho. Sakho does not want to join West Brom.}

31 Aug 2017 08:15:41
No no ed1 I didn't mean to say in that way. It's just that he was only a couple games into the season and only starting to settle and then got a long term injury and hasn't played much if any.

{Ed001's Note - I know mate, but still you would have had every commentator and pundit constantly mentioning his name if Ndidi had not performed. That's what I was meaning. It would have been impossible to forget him.

By the way, what do you think of James? He certainly has quality, but I do not like the way he races out of the defensive set up to try and nick a ball and, when he fails (which he did every time I have seen them), just throws his arms up in the air and his head back leaving them shorthanded. It is a good few seconds before he gets his head back in the game, plenty of time to cost Leicester a goal.}

31 Aug 2017 09:02:23
Ed001 let's hope your right on Mahrez just got 33/ 1 to join Roma. What I will say though is I guarantee he joins someone else because I never win a bet. ever!

{Ed001's Note - I doubt he will go anywhere if not Roma. Having spoken to people at Leicester, they tell me nothing has changed, Roma's offer is the only one on the table and that is not acceptable to them.}

31 Aug 2017 10:53:42
I have not seen James play too much but I don't think he has the discipline to play in a two-man midfield as you pointed out.
Also I think the fact Kante played for them and was so good has been a hindrance for everyone. All the time they are compared to him which is criminal in my view and I think James tries too much to be like Kante due to all the media pressure (so do others but even more so James because he seems too eager to impress and also to secure a starting berth due to having not played for so long) .

While talking about Leicester's midfield it just got me thinking how many good options they still have. I just think they need a competent manager and they can be a threat to any side.


{Ed001's Note - shame they don't have one of those, Shakespeare might become one but he is clearly not one yet.}

31 Aug 2017 11:12:27
Sure sure ed1 Shakespeare might turn out to be an inspired choice but he just seems to be a yes man for the players. As an outsider looking in, he just looks like a guy to attend the press conference s and stand at the touchline. It just looks like the players can do whatever they like.

{Ed001's Note - that is exactly what he is. He is their mate and a nice guy that they like but he is not their boss yet. Hard to tell if he will develop the necessary management skills, but signs are not good.}

31 Aug 2017 13:13:22
Thanks ed.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}

30 Aug 2017 06:35:32
Hi ed's are there any legs in the krychowiak rumours, or is he set for WBA? Very shrewd signing in my opinion.

{Ed001's Note - both teams are interested, neither have yet to agree a fee, though I expect both will at some point today and it come down to the player to choose.}

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Aug 2017 09:47:48
Morning Eds.

Is Townsend going to Leicester, and if so will that mean Mahrez is moving?

Also is there anything happening with Mahrez to Arsenal?

Thank you :)

{Ed001's Note - Leicester are one of the interested parties, yes it is to replace Mahrez, but only Roma have made a bid so far.}

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Aug 2017 21:25:32
Thanks for the reply Ed001.

I'm surprised Arsenal aren't going back but maybe we still want to get Lemar done? Hopefully its not because we're going nothing now!

25 Jul 2017 13:57:40
Hi Ed,
Has Wenger decided not to pursue Mahrez now? Seems he is close to signing for Roma.

{Ed001's Note - Roma are just willing to offer more money to Leicester right now.}

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2017 17:58:33
Hi Ed,
Has there been any movement with Mahrez?

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware.}

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2017 21:40:42
Thanks again ed.

08 Jul 2017 14:29:15
Is there any interest in him from other teams?

13 May 2017 19:15:53
Ed who is interested in mahrez

{Ed002's Note - Wenger has the hots for him.}

Agree1 Disagree0

06 May 2017 06:44:18
The end of the season will show just how much power the players have at the club - if Shakespeare is not replaced, then the players are running things. He is their mate, the man they want. The owners have been advised by others to bring in a big name.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jun 2017 17:29:48
Shakespeare has just been confirmed as the new manager, apparently on a three-year deal.

24 Feb 2017 22:40:06
Forest fan in peace.
Good luck Mr Ranieri you deserved far far better than this shoddy treatment.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Feb 2017 22:38:24
Liverpool supporter coming in peace. What the HELL!
You've just sacked the best thing to happen to you ever! (including Lineker, Vardey and Heskey) !
It's great news for us as we play you next but what the HELL are you doing?
You're the Premiership CHAMPIONS and progressing brilliantly in the Champions League!
You trashed Manchester City a few weeks ago in a magnificent show of fluent football! Who are you going to replace the man who Chelsea shouldn't have sacked with?
Okay, you're not going to retain your title but you sure as hell are going to find it tough to stay up now. but good luck!

Agree1 Disagree0

Leicester have had an approach turned down for hull city's jake Livermore

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jan 2017 02:40:37
Everton signings chief Steve Walsh formerly of Leicester wants Demarai Gray who he signed for Leicester . Possible swap with Gerard Delefeu with Leicester paying £5m on top.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jan 2017 02:35:13
Foxes interested in Jamal Laschelles of Newcastle, Ryan Shawcross of Stoke, and Fabian Schar of Hoffenheim, if they can't get Acerbi from Sassuolo .
Foxes also want a right back Cyrus Christie of Derby .

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Dec 2016 16:06:33
Hi eds are th3 ndidi rumours true that we have all but completed the deal?

Also if or not he's signing who else is looking possible. Hoping for anther cm and a new rb.

Give me some good news ;)

{Ed002's Note - It is true that LCFC have been negotiating the transfer of Wilfred Ndidi and they have looked at a number of others who are far less likely to happen - Tiemoue Bakayoko, Luka Milivojevic, Gabriel Barbosa (loan), Franck Kessie and Michael Keane. There are likely others I can't recall right now.}

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Dec 2016 16:53:35
Brilliant ed. Will give us a massive lift if he can build next to danny.

After the weekend that could be the switch for us to have a really successful second half of the season.😊

Cheers for the update boss!

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}
