Brendan Rodgers will speak to Andy King regarding his Leicester City future and admits the midfielder could leave the club this summer, as per the Leicester Mercury.
Welsh international King is Leicester’s longest serving player but is currently injured after an ankle injury cut short his loan spell with Derby County.
Rodgers said of the midfielder: “Ultimately for players it is about game time. They want to play, and he is at an age where he will want to play.
“If we can offer him that, then great. If not, then he may think of going somewhere else. I haven’t seen him play for a while, but I know what he is all about and his significance here. We will definitely have a conversation between now and the end of the season and see where we are at.”
King has almost become embedded into the fabric of Leicester and is one of the few remaining players for their historic title win in the 2015-16 season.
But with new midfield talent like Hamza Choudhury coming through to challenge the likes of Wilfried N’Didi for their spots, it’s tough to see where King fits into this new Leicester blueprint.
And it’s better for a player like King to go somewhere and play – he would be a very good Championship player and can still do a job in the top flight – than to just fade away at a club for whom he has given so much and could not begrudge him a new challenge.
