​Choudhury finding Leicester future uncertain after failed Newcastle move

Leicester City star Hamza Choudhury is still facing an uncertain future at the club.

The midfielder had looked like he was set to go to Newcastle United on loan in the January transfer window.

The move did not pan out, as Leicester could not find a replacement for the defensive midfielder, and the 23-year-old has to wait until the summer to see if he can find regular first team football somewhere else.

According to Leicestershire Live's Jordan Blackwell, Choudhury is likely to leave the club in the summer.

He said, per Chronicle Live: "Uncertain. Rodgers has already gone on record in saying he has too many defensive midfielders and wants to redress the balance of his side in the middle of the park. That means Choudhury or Mendy will be leaving this summer.

"While Choudhury has played more recently, there is no doubt Mendy has had the better season, and while the Senegalese international is not as aggressive in his work-rate, he is better on the ball, and that could be the key to seeing him retain his place in the squad as Ndidi's deputy.

"Choudhury may also be easier to sell, given he is younger and he's English, making him more of an asset to other clubs."
