Brendan Rodgers must add Dedryck Boyata and Kristoffer Ajer to his Leicester squad

The newly appointed Foxes boss is likely to be backed with a substantial transfer kitty during the summer.

Brendan Rodgers suffered defeat on his return to Premier League football as Leicester City went down 2-1 to Watford.

It was a cruel blow for Rodgers who saw his new charges beaten in the third minute of added time.

With the Foxes not really in danger of being relegated this season, the last couple of months of the season could prove experimental.

Rodgers will certainly be able to identify which players he sees featuring next season, whilst he will also discover where he needs to strengthen.

It seems pretty certain that he will return to Celtic for recruits.

Yesterday The Sun reported that central defender Dedryck Boyata is on Leicester’s list of summer targets.

The 28-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and wouldn’t cost the Foxes a transfer fee.


The Belgian would represent a good signing given the quality he has shown north of the border.

Spending spree

Boyata’s defensive partner at Celtic is Kristoffer Ajer and the Leicester boss would be wise to sign him too.

The Norwegian performer is versatile and is set for a bright future.

He has played 33 games in all competitions this season and is clearly a player who is trusted by the Leicester boss.

In Scotland, he has played largely in defence, but he is also capable of holding in front of a back four.

Wes Morgan is 35, Jonny Evans is 31, whilst Harry Maguire will surely attract interest from bigger clubs.

Rodgers is going to have to do some serious work on his back four.

Boyata and Ajer have struck up a good partnership and both would represent decent signings for Foxes.

Defender Filip Benkovic is on loan at Celtic Park from Leicester at the moment and he will possibly earn a Premier League chance too.

Ajer is still young, however, and he could prove to be a tremendous signing for Rodgers.
