Brendan Rodgers can bolster Leicester City ranks by reuniting with £10k-a-week ace

Having not been given much of a chance to impress at Girona, Patrick Roberts could be on the lookout for a new club in the summer.

Brendan Rodgers has overseen a mini-revival since taking over at Leicester City back in March.

After losing his first match against Watford, Rodgers oversaw five straight wins prior to Friday’s defeat to Newcastle.

The Foxes have rocketed up to seventh in the league although teams below them do have games in hand.

Next season will see Rodgers firmly on the spot for the first time. He will likely be handed a decent-sized kitty with which to build a squad capable of challenging for Europe.

On that basis, he will dip his toe into the transfer market and do some rebuilding work on his squad.

 

It probably won’t take too much. The group at Leicester already boasts some exciting young talent and it will be more a case of adding quality over quantity.

If Rodgers is one thing it’s loyal and that could see him return for a player he got the best out of at Celtic.

Patrick Roberts hasn’t really had a season to remember at Girona. He has started just five games for the La Liga outfit, contributing one assist in a Copa del Rey contest.

The 22-year-old showed under Rodgers at Celtic Park what a quality player he could go on and become. He played 78 games, scoring 18 goals and claiming 26 assists.

His contract with parent club Manchester City is up at the end of next season and they could be willing to cash in. The tricky winger earns just £10k-a-week at City, according to Spotrac.

Roberts would fit in nicely with the ethos at the King Power Stadium. His arrival would compliment a growing plethora of youngsters at Rodgers’ disposal.

It seems unlikely that Roberts can break the bank and if any manager can unleash the undoubted potential it is definitely Rodgers.
