Hamza Choudhury could yet leave Leicester City this summer, with his future being described as ‘uncertain’.
The midfielder was a target for Newcastle United during the winter transfer window, but there were a number of reasons why a move didn’t come to fruition.
Ultimately, Leicester could not sign a replacement for the 23-year-old, which made the Foxes unwilling to do a loan deal with the Magpies.
Since then, Choudhury has seen a slight pick-up in terms of opportunities at the King Power Stadium.
He’s started four of the last 12 games, and six further appearances off the bench.
But according to Leicester Mercury journalist Jordan Blackwell, the former England U21 international’s future is still up in the air.
He told the Chronicle: “(His future is) Uncertain. Rodgers has already gone on record in saying he has too many defensive midfielders and wants to redress the balance of his side in the middle of the park.
“That means Choudhury or Mendy will be leaving this summer.”
An opportunity for Newcastle
Regardless of which division Newcastle will be in next season, it seems like Choudhury could be an opportunity this summer.
Blackwell’s comments indicate that Choudhury is not an absolute crucial player for Leicester.
He adds that Mendy has had the better season out of the two players, so it seems there could be a good chance of a sale.
