Leicester boss Puel omits King from Premier League squad

Leicester City boss Claude Puel has omitted Andy King from his Premier League squad.

The Sun says Puel does not feel the midfielder will be part of his plans at the King Power Stadium and has axed King from the squad.

Every Premier League club must submit a list of 25 players to the Premier League, eight of which must be classed as home-grown.

And King has been deemed surplus to requirements on Filbert Way for the upcoming season, but has missed the chance to go out on loan after the loan window closed on Friday.

The signings of midfielders Adrien Silva, Wilfred Ndidi, Vicente Iborra, as well as the emergence of Hamza Choudhury, meant King was rarely used under Puel and he joined Swansea for the second half of last season.
