Leicester City are reportedly willing to listen to offers for midfielder Andy King this summer with the player surplus to requirements under Brendan Rodgers – so should West Brom and Nottingham Forest reignite January interest?
King, 30, went on loan to Derby County in January after struggling to break into the Leicester side. But the 50-time Wales international managed just four appearances before suffering an ankle problem.
It ruled the former Swansea City loanee out for the rest of the campaign, and now he is looking for a new home this summer either on a permanent deal or as part of a loan. His Leicester contract ends in 2020.
Back in January, West Bromwich Albion and Nottingham Forest were said to be interested in landing the midfielder on loan, according to the Nottingham Post. Now they could look to sign him again, if interested.
King is a proven Championship performer, having clocked up 205 appearances in the second tier – all with Leicester. His stats are pretty good, too, scoring a goal every five games from midfield – hitting the back of the net 40 times.
Still only 30 years of age, King would be an excellent addition for any Championship side chasing a place in the top six come May 2020 – given his goals from deep – and the Baggies and Forest have got to become interested again.
Both sides are expected to be in and around the top six, and the addition of a player who can score goals from deep and has promotion experience is key. King would be an excellent addition for Forest or the Baggies.
