Leicester boss Rodgers delighted with Fofana’s swoop

Leicester City boss, Brendan Rodgers, is delighted with their deal for St Etienne defender Wesley Fofana.

City announced their third new recruit of the summer on Friday, welcoming Wesley Fofana to the club in a £32m deal with Saint-Etienne, the teenage centre-back following Timothy Castagne and Cengiz Under through the door.

“There’s one or two other positions that we’d like to have added in, but I think the market will be difficult for us,” he said at Friday’s press conference.

“I wouldn’t anticipate any more coming in, but you never know. We wanted to bring in quality. That was always our measure and I’m delighted with the players we have.

“I’m thrilled with what we’ve done. Lee (Congerton, head of recruitment) and his team have been exceptional in the work they’ve done over this past year, the number of players they’ve looked at.

“Quality was going to be important, not necessarily the numbers. I had an idea of what I wanted numerically, but it was really about the quality.

“Those three players, two signings and a loan, will definitely improve us. If we don’t bring anyone else in, it’s a terrific squad and another improvement going forward.”
