Jamie Redknapp says Leicester have a 'real talent' in their ranks with 'such a bright future'

Leicester City defender Wesley Fofana has been praised by Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp following his superb maiden season for the Foxes.

The 20-year-old has been sensational for Brendan Rodgers’ charges since making the move to the King Power Stadium last summer.

Leicester paid Saint-Etienne a reported £31.5million for Fofana’s services, and he’s been so good that he could be called a bargain.

This season, the France Under-21 international has made 38 appearances for the Foxes in all competitions.

His efforts have helped Leicester win the FA Cup for the first time in their history and nearly got the team over the line for the Champions League.

Sadly, Fofana suffered a hamstring injury early on in Sunday’s Premier League finale against Spurs.

The Foxes were 1-0 up when the Frenchman departed, eventually losing 4-2 to miss out on the Champions League and finish fifth for the second consecutive season.

A number of Sky Sports pundits have named their Premier League teams of the season, and Fofana was in Redknapp’s XI.

“Wesley Fofana is a real talent and has really impressed me since he’s come in at centre back for Leicester,” he wrote on Sky Sports.

“At just 20 years old he’s got such a bright future.”
