Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted that Demarai Gray is unlikely to remain with the club beyond this season.
Rodgers said (as quoted by the Daily Mail): “It’s pretty clear with Demarai he’s looking to move on. His attitude to training has been first class, he has been very professional.
“He is at the stage of his career where he has been here a long time and hasn’t maybe nailed down a place. A fresh start may be the course for him.”
The 24-year-old has yet to feature for the Foxes this season in the Premier League or Europa League. This confirms that he is currently surplus to requirements at the King Power Stadium.
As his contract is due to expire at the end of the season, Leicester will probably be open to selling Gray next month.
Gray started his senior career with Birmingham City in 2013 before earning a move to the King Power Stadium in 2016. He was a key player for the club’s first-team over the past four seasons and has made 132 league appearances for the club, scoring ten goals.
The winger moving to a new team will be the best thing for both club and player at this stage of his career.
