Conor Coady emerges as transfer target for relegated Leicester City

Conor Coady emerges as transfer target for relegated Leicester City

Wolves defender Conor Coady has reportedly emerged as summer transfer target for Leicester City.

According to TEAMtalk today, the Foxes are looking at the England international as they seek to rebuild following their relegation to the Championship

Coady will return to Wolves this summer, after Everton declined to take up their option to buy him after his loan spell.

Coady – who cost Wolves £2 million – lost prominence at Goodison Park following the arrival of Sean Dyche at the end of January.

His future is now up in the air.

Sporting director Matt Hobbs recently said that Coady has ‘made it clear he would like to come back’. He then said that he would be talking to Julen Lopetegui about whether or not there is a role for him at Molineux.

Should there not be, Leicester are waiting in the wings…

Both Caglar Soyuncu and Daniel Amartey are leaving the King Power, so reinforcements are required.

Previously, it has been claimed that Sheffield United, who took Coady on loan earlier in his career, are also keen on the player. Nottingham Forest have also been mentioned.

Given Everton’s buy option was only around £4.5 million, any permanent transfer would likely be for around the same kind of money.

Suitors are not going to want to pay much more than what Everton had negotiated.

Conor Coady would surely want to avoid the Championship if he could, as Leicester show interest

It’s understandable Leicester would be interested in signing a player like Coady.

He’s obviously played in the Championship before, and the Foxes need someone experienced and organised for their backline.

But Coady is not going to want this move, surely.

He will undoubtedly have hopes of getting back into the England squad.

Since going to the World Cup, Coady has missed out on the last two England squads due to not playing regularly at club level.

While he would play regularly at Leicester, the fact they are now a Championship club wouldn’t help his cause getting back into the England squad.

Surely, he would favour a move to a club like Sheffield United if he wasn’t going to stay at Wolves.
