​Brady's Ranieri comments stopped Leicester striker Slimani joining West Ham

It appears Leicester City were refusing to do business with West Ham United vice-chair Karren Brady in the Islam Slimani transfer.

There were quite a few reports suggesting Slimani was on his way to West Ham in the January transfer window.

But a deadline day move was called off because Leicester flat-out refused to negotiate with Brady.

It seems the issue stems from comments Brady made in a newspaper column in the recent past, where she was scathing about the decision from Leicester to sack manager Claudio Ranieri less than a season after he helped them win the Premier League.

West Ham have apologised for the incident, but it seems to have scuppered this transfer for good.
