Good morning and welcome to our live transfer blog in Leicester City for Sunday 5th September 2021.

We are now less than a week from Leicester’s return to the Premier League after that international break in September when they hosted Manchester City at King Power Stadium.

This meeting with the reigning champions begins a series of seven games over 23 days as City’s Carabao Cup and Europa League commitments begin for another season.

With the frequency of games increasing and the rest days between games getting shorter, this suggests we will see many more Brendan Rodgers additions during this period through early October than we have seen so far this season.

Patson Daka, Boubakary Soumare and Jannik Vestergaard (injury dependent) can now count on more minutes of play since they have been released from the bench to varying degrees.

And it should also see Ryan Bertrand’s competitive debuts, after having had a fortnight to shake off his complaints, and Ademola Lookman’s deadline.

During your rest day, stay tuned with this live blog to prepare for the next game month and more to ensure you are kept up to date with the latest transfer news and reactions from LeicestershireLive.
