Newly promoted Leicester City are bracing themselves for a barrage of Premier League offers for their Welsh international, Andy King, reports Sky Sports. The midfielder is a crucial player in Nigel Pearson’s squad, but that hasn’t prevented interest coming in from Sunderland, Queens Park Rangers and West Brom.
King has been at Leicester for the whole of his professional career, and the 25 year old is now a very important player at the club. With 54 goals in 278 appearances in all competitions, King has achieved status as the highest-scoring midfielder in the club’s history, and has earned himself a very good reputation within the King Power Stadium terraces.
Valued at around £2.5 million though, the player has just 12 months left to run on his current Leicester contract. He has become a desirable and affordable player for a trio of top flight clubs as Sunderland, QPR and West Brom are all looking to strengthen their midfield presence before the transfer window closes.
King has played the full 90 minutes in both of Leicester’s Premier League games so far this season, and he is expected to continue to feature heavily during the entire campaign. Should King leave the club then it will likely be an almost unforeseen move, and a disappointing one as well. Having worked hard with the Foxes to earn promotion back to the big time, he is a player who is highly valued at the club, and somebody that they want to keep hold of.
