Leeds should make loan bid for Leicester’s Choudhury as Puel hints at January exit

Hamza Choudhury is an immensely talented young midfielder and if there is a chance Claude Puel will leave him leave the King Power Stadium on loan in January, Leeds should be at the front of the queue.

Leicester City manager Claude Puel has raised the possibility that talented young midfielder Hamza Choudhury, according to the Leicester Mercury.

Puel said: “Hamza… has been training with the first team for a long time.  We have a lot of midfielders but I think when a player like an academy player can have good quality we have to give him a chance and give him game time.

“I don’t know his future or whether he will remain with us or we put him on loan but it was important to give him confidence.”


Choudhury showed his quality with an impressive performance against reigning champions Manchester City in the EFL Cup in midweek and would be a real coup for a Championship side if Puel does allow him to leave on a temporary basis during next month’s transfer window.

Marcelo Bielsa could use another body in midfield now that Samu Saiz has left to join Getafe on loan and although Choudhury is a different profile of player, he has the quality to play in Leeds’ passing system.

He held his own in refined company in midweek and is now ready for some regular gametime to further his development.

The switch would work well for all parties; because Puel himself admitted that Choudhury may struggle for games at the King Power because of the bloated midfield ranks at the club.
