25-year-old Leicester City ace doesn’t want to play in Championship

Posted by

Enzo Maresca is likely to be delighted with the way in which his Leicester side have started the 2023/24 campaign, with an opening day Championship win against Coventry followed by a Carabao Cup win at Burton.

Unfortunately for the Foxes and any of their opponents, the transfer window remains open for almost another three weeks, and that means that transfers out are still a big possibility.

For managers who are trying to ensure dressing room equilibrium, it’s a time of the season that they can do without.

It leaves a sour taste when players who are clearly part of their club’s plans, and have begun the season with them, or then forced to accept a sale.

In the case of Wout Faes, however, he’s made his own bed and it will be interesting to see how Maresca and the Leicester board react.

According to Turkish TV reporter, Ertan Suzgun, the 25-year-old Belgian doesn’t want to play in the Championship and is seeking a move away.

Galatasaray are apparently interested in the player’s services, and Leicester may well be able to turn the situation to their advantage.

Suzgun also notes Gala’s 23-year-old, Yunus Akgun, is of interest to the Midlands-based side, and negotiations for both players will continue.

With plenty of time left before the window closes, there’s every chance a deal could be done.

  1. Doesn’t Faes realise he’ll be back in the Premier League if he stays to help Leicester win promotion. He’s on contract which he was happy to sign, so, needs to accept where he and his club are!
    He’s on good money so needs to buckle down & get on with it!

  2. Does he realise the only reason were in the championship is that he wasn’t good enough to keep us in the premiership like a lot other players in the team. Sell him and move on l say

  3. One of my old bosses called his management team together after some new recruits were causing a few problems. He announced that there was now a new policy of FIFO – not first in first out he announced but fit in or f**k off.
    Looks as though LCFC could adopt it here!
