... have pulled a crafty one this summer. A couple of years ago, they were linked with a young lad called George Hirst at Sheffield Wednesday who were quoting a ridiculous sum for him. He ran down his contract to last summer in the hope that he could then sign for Leicester (whether through tribunal or Leicester agreeing a compensation fee due to his age). They couldn't so he ended up joining OH Leuven in Belgium, which are a club owned by the same owners as Leicesters, and because he went abroad, the compensation figure was something like Ā£200k.
He's spent the year there .... and guess what, he joined the Leicester academy a couple of weeks back (for what I can see, virtually nothing).
Good way of going around things, albeit him having to spend the year in Belgium.

... that article from Lambert is a bit of a joke this morning, isn't it? I have to admit, I'm getting slightly bored by the whole 'youngsters' line that has been rolled out at every opportunity so far this pre-season by PL. You just know that's going to be the excuse for him (and Evans) when we're languishing in mid-table come January/February with no chance of promotion or relegation.
If Evans doesn't invest to some sort of decent level this summer, I honestly think it will be his biggest failure since he's been here.
These are the days people, these are the days.

for the press conference today....
āReally happy with Holy and Norwood signings, but not close to anything elseā
āGot to be careful with who we sign, have to be better than what weāve got as weāre using the kids and donāt want to block their path to the first teamā
āTalking to a couple of players at the minute, but still on holiday and have other optionsā
