Rodgers been singing his praise. Training with the first team. Maybe a good option?? 

be nice if he could solve the winger problem from within, he'd need to be added to the PL squad though before he can play but that can be done up to 24 hours before the match

What's Rodgers said?

 

If he doesn't have a future here, then I doubt Rodgers will downplay him or criticise him. Even if it's a loan - he'll want to 'advertise' the good parts to sell the asset, so to speak.

 

Kapustka can be praised for how he's returned from a serious injury though. That can't be taken away from him.

I would love to see this lad come good for us. He quite obviously has talent and desire but can he impress Brendan ?

Kapustka can be praised for how he's returned from a serious injury though. That can't be taken away from him. 

“Time will tell” if Bartosz Kapustka has a future at Leicester City but the Polish winger has impressed manager Brendan Rodgers since returning from injury.

After nine months out with a cruciate ligament tear suffered on loan at City’s sister club OH Leuven, Kapustka made his return to action last week, playing 90 minutes, and setting up a goal, in the Under-23s’ 5-1 win over Wolves.

The 23-year-old has been training with Rodgers’ first team and the manager has liked what he’s seen.

“He’s been very good in training,” Rodgers said. “He’s been excellent, to be fair.

“He’s a young player who broke on the scene for Poland at the Euros in 2016. He did very well. Nobody knew much about him. He came to Leicester, went out on loan, and has been unfortunate with the injury.

“But certainly from what I’ve seen in training, he’s been impressive. He’s worked hard to get back. He’s technically gifted, he’s sharp, he looks like he wants to score a goal.

“He did well in the reserve game he played.”

Three-and-a-half years into his five-year contract at the King Power Stadium, Kapustka has only made three senior appearances for the club.

He has not been able to follow through on the hype that surrounded his performances for his country as a teenager. A tweet from City icon Gary Lineker – “Sense we'll see a lot of Kapustka in the coming years. Deliciously talented 19 year old” – has proven to be a poisoned chalice.

The Pole has seemingly failed to adjust to English football, and did not set the world alight on loan at Freiburg in Germany, nor with Leuven in the Belgian second tier, although he played an influential role in Poland Under-21s’ qualification for the Euros last summer, a tournament he missed because of his injury.

Asked if being labelled as the next big thing had affected Kapustka, Rodgers said: “I don’t know anyone who under pressure gets their best performance. You hear all this stuff after players being better when they play under pressure. There’s not many that do, it’s just how people handle it.

“For him, bless him, he’s a young player who’s moved countries, moved to a different style of football.

“It’s just time, whether he ends up staying here or not, that’s for the future, but I think it’s nice to see him back training, fit, having been out for so long.

“Time will tell with him whether he has a future here or not, but he’s certainly a talent there’s no doubt about that.” 

Kapustka could move out on loan in the second half of the season, with City looking to get game-time for young players, out-of-favour stars, and those returning from injury.

So far, George Thomas has joined ADO Den Haag on loan, with Andy King on his way to Huddersfield.

Thanks.

I hope Rodgers didn't actually say this twice :P 

 


I think a loan move would be best to perhaps gauge where he is at (this, speaking as a fan who's not seen him in training at all lol). Gut instinct tells me that chucking him in to our side, just because he's an option, may not be the wisest move and just put more pressure on him.

He is at least as good as half the others in the P.L. Maguire has set the benchline now .You want an experienced C. B. who is not well over 30  , think 60 million. We ain't in that market.

Caglar and Benko are the long term replacements and back to Kaputska , he would almost certainly be likely to improve our current wide options

Hmmmm ...   I know what you’re saying Jim but something doesn’t sit right here ...   BR seems to want an up and running CB right now ...  and prepared to pay a good chunk to get one.   This ‘singing Kaputskas praises’ thread reminded me of it ...

No premier league club is going to sell an important member of their defence to us. We will have to look abroad if we really need one , which I doubt.

Kaputska looked good playing for the U23's, it was quite obvious that he has lots of talent.  It would be sweet if he could make it for us.
