Genk chief warns Leicester: Castagne destined for Man Utd or Arsenal

Genk technical director Dimitri De Conde has warned Leicester City that new signing Timothy Castagne won't be staying for long.

The Belgium fullback joined the Foxes this week from Serie A high-flyers Atalanta.

De Conde said: "In modern football there are not many players who can bring what he can.

"He's reliable. He has a good basic technique, seldom gives away his position, does not lose the ball. Meunier is also an excellent player, but because Timothy was trained as a defender, he is more stable defensively.

“I found it more difficult to estimate whether Tielemans would live up to it at Leicester at that high pace. He did it.

“With Timothy, I know he will stand out at Leicester. He can become one of the best fullbacks in the Premier League. And then move on to clubs like Arsenal or Manchester United."
