Following Brendan Rodgers to Leicester City could be a potentially career-ruining move for Celtic defender Dedryck Boyata

Leicester have been linked with Dedryck Boyata.

Brendan Rodgers has only recently left Celtic but he has already been linked with a move to bring a player with him to Leicester City.

According to The Scottish Sun, Rodgers is considering a swoop for Celtic defender Dedryck Boyata when the summer transfer window opens.

Boyata will become a free agent at the end of the season after Rodgers tried and failed to get the defender to sign fresh terms.

Now he could bring the Belgium international to The King Power Stadium to bolster his defensive options.

 

But this could be a disastrous career move for Boyata, who needs to be guaranteed playing time if he decides to leave Celtic.

Unfortunately for the 28-year-old, Leicester have a number of impressive centre-back options who would surely keep him out of the first-team.

Harry Maguire has one of the two centre-half spots nailed down, provided the Foxes keep him from the clutches of the Premier League big boys.

And four players will already be vying to partner Maguire at the back next season even if Boyata does not complete his move.

Filip Benkovic is currently impressing on loan at Celtic and Rodgers knows exactly what he can do when he returns to Leicester.

Benkovic will be competing with Jonny Evans, Wes Morgan and Caglar Soyuncu for the starting spot alongside Maguire.

This would be a risky move for Boyata, who would face an uphill battle trying to make the match day squad, let alone starting.
