Andy King is ready to end his long association with Leicester by demanding a move after falling completely out of favour. The 30-year-old is Leicester’s longest serving player having spent the last 14 years at the club, which included winning the title in each of England’s top three divisions.
However that appears to count for nothing at the moment and King will push for a move after being completely left out of the Foxes squad for the Carabao Cup tie against Southampton.

Boss Claude Puel opted to give South African 19-year-old winger Khanya Leshabela, a place on the bench for the first time, and that appears to have been the final straw.
After Leicester’s win over Southampton on penalties, Puel said: “We have a lot of players in the squad and I cannot give time to all of them. “I’m sorry for them but I try to manage all the things with right solution. We have a lot of midfielders.”
That will not wash with King, who will be actively searching for a new club ahead of the transfer window opening.
