Delighted for him, but I'm starting to think his family in America is pure Tracy Beaker style fiction. 

Not one for the older members ......

 

perhaps walter Mitty would help for them ...

Just a back up striker, winger and CM needed then... 

A CM on top of Tielemans do you think?

Great news for us but I bet that was one uncomfortable phone call to the missus. 

 

I somewhat doubt he's gone and signed a contract then rang his missus up and gone "oh btw love"  lol I imagine he's discussed his future with her at length.

 

I know his plan was going to play in the MLS but it's not really as simple as just leaving Leicester and walking straight into the MLS club of choosing. He's been allowed to talk to foreign clubs for months 

 

Anyway on topic will be 33 for the majority of next season so far from over the hill very steady backup/rotation player to have about. Possibly even into 2021 if he legs don't go and he wants another year.

Yep. Unless he goes to the MLS as one of the 3 designated players it would be a serious reduction in wages to sub 5k.

 

I imagine there isn't much interest in him as one of those players so another year here picking up 50k a week is a no brainer.

Happy either way to be honest. With Luke Thomas and Calvin Ughelumba well thought of in the academy the ideal situation would be for Fuchs to hold the fort as Chilwell's understudy for one more year and one of these lads stepping up next season. 

 

In an ideal situation you don't want to be spending good money on a player who is just coming to be cover.

You could go without, but ideally I'd let Mendy go and bring in a more all round player.

Wasn't expecting this. Perhaps his NY plans didn't work out or he's delaying it til next year. Perhaps Brendan's given him some assurances he'll feature in cup games? Or is looking to go in to coaching/doing some courses here with us?

Think he's secretly seeing Suzie the Fox so he's obviously reluctant to go back? 

Nailed it.

I imagine this is the reason tbh:

This is a nice surprise. Couldn't ask for better realistic LB backup. Seems a great guy to have around the dressing room, as well.

 

Great bit of business.

Good stuff. He looked rusty at Newport, but completely nullified Mahrez in the league cup. Great character and solid back up.

Fine as long as chilwell stays fit and at Leicester. Probably good to keep him as an experience pro even if he doesnt play, as we will lose a few this Summer.
