  • Leicester midfielder Hamza Choudhury is wanted by Watford and West Brom
  • The 24-year-old is keen to get a loan move to earn more starting opportunities 
  • West Brom and Watford played out a score draw in the Championship on Monday
  • The Foxes are welcoming a host of offers for Wesley Fofana and James Maddison

Leicester City midfielder Hamza Choudhury is attracting interest from Watford and West Brom.

The Championship sides played out a lacklustre 1-1 draw on Monday evening and are looking to add extra bite to their midfield as they look to build a promotion campaign.

The former England U21 international could be allowed to leave on loan as he wants regular starting opportunities after recent seasons in and out of Leicester’s first team.

Choudhury won the FA Cup with Leicester in 2021 and is a crowd favourite but has grown frustrated at a lack of starts and, despite interest from Premier League sides, has seen a number of potential moves fall through.

Albion manager Steve Bruce wanted Choudhury while he was in charge at Newcastle United and is keen to bring him to the Hawthorns.

Watford are still expecting a number of enquiries for their players before the end of the window and see 24-year old Choudhury as a midfielder who could give them stability and experience throughout the season and potentially into the Premier League.

Leicester are looking to offload a number of players this summer however the biggest offers have come for players they would prefer to keep.

Chelsea are preparing an £80million offer for Wesley Fofana while Newcastle have so far failed in two bids for James Maddison as they look to fill the void left by Jonjo Shelvey’s hamstring injury.

Defender Jannik Vestergaard had an offer from Fulham but didn’t want to make the permanent £12m move. 

The Denmark international would prefer to go on loan instead, however, that doesn’t suit Leicester’s financial plan as they look to sell before they can bring in new additions for Brendan Rodgers owing to financial fair play guidelines.
