Leicester City

Silva will have to wait till summer for Foxes exit

25th January 2019, 12:17 by Daniel McCarthy

Leicester City will hold onto midfielder Adrien Silva at least until the end of the season, according to reports.

The Portuguese international, has endured a miserable time at the King Power Stadium since making a long, protracted move from Sporting Lisbon.

Leicester signed the 29-year-old in August 2017, but the paperwork reached FIFA seconds after the transfer deadline, meaning they had to wait until January to register him in the squad.

He has since failed to establish himself in the Foxes squad and has only made one Premier League start this season, with Nampalys Mendy, Wilfried Ndidi and academy graduate Hamza Choudhury being the preferred options in the middle.

However, reports suggest that while Silva is keen to leave the club, Puel says he remains part of his plans, and there is no desire to sell or loan out the player until the end of the season.

Inter Milan are said to be interested in signing the 26 time-capped Portugal man, but the club say no firm bids have been received for the player.

He is receiving interest around Europe with Roma, Genoa, Lille and former club Sporting Lisbon all admirers.
