Saints After Leicester City Midfielder
Tuesday, 8th Sep 2020 21:52

Latest media reports suggest that Hamza Choudhury could be heading South from the King Power Stadium to St Mary's as Saints look to bring in a defensive midfield player in place of the Danish squad player who joined Spurs.

Hamza Choudhury has yet to truly take of for the Foxes and as he heads to his 23rd birthday next month he considering his future at Leicester and Saints are said to be interested.

But Leicester are said to be in rush to get rid of the local born player who has been at the club since a child and had broken into first team recognition in the season just gone.

One year into a four year deal he will not be sold cheaply and although he has to look at his chances at the King Power in the coming year he has strong emotional ties to the club.

But Saints seem willing to pay for a decent replacement for Hojbjerg and are considering Choudhury a player who can play as a defensive midfielder or in a more advanced role.

The only drawback is his lack of Premier League experience, he has played only 37 times in the Premier League for the Foxes totalling 1,861 minutes

But if it is the right price for Saints and the player sees his chances limited at Leicester then it could be a goer.

If he signs he will be the most recognisable player in the team with his distinctive afro style hair as evidenced in the picture at the head of this story.

Loan with an option to buy at a pre set price. That should be a win for all three parties

Not sure he is a step up from Hojberg

IF he signed it would be as back up for JWP and Romeu. On that basis I don’t see much of an incentive for the player to join Saints even if Leicester want rid. At his age he should be looking a starting opportunities.

I think he’s a good player, he’s not getting game time due to the quality in the Leicester midfield. If the price is reasonable he is worth a punt, especially given his age suggests he could improve with coaching and more game time.

Here is a player who can't get regular game time with his present club, who... (if they are smart) ..will demand a ridiculous fee and won't miss him after he's gone.
There are (supposedly) good reports when he has played, but clearly he hasn't had a lot of game time and will take time to integrate into Ralph's style of play (if ever).

Haven't we learned the lesson of Boufal, Hoedt, Carrillo and Vestergaard yet ?
If this is to be a genuine deal, we need to take him on loan - with an option to buy - and maybe a chance to see how it works out.
NOTE TO CHAIRMAN . No more £20 million "blind dates " please.
