​Ulloa backtracks on Leicester strike threat

Leonardo Ulloa has told Sky Sports he will remain professional at Leicester and won't go on strike despite being distraught at failing to move on Deadline Day.

The 30-year-old Argentine turned up for training on Wednesday lunchtime a day after hearing about his club rejecting a third and final bid of £7.5m plus add-ons from Sunderland.

He will report for training every day, and he will continue to honour his contractual obligations as he looks to recover from the thigh injury which has left him unavailable for selection for the last three weeks.
