Former Leicester City striker Brian Deane has told Football FanCast in an exclusive interview that Ryan Bertrand would fit in well at his old club.
Bertrand is a free agent this month after deciding not to extend his contract at Southampton and the King Power looks the most likely destination for the 31-year-old left-back.
According to Football Insider, Bertrand has already agreed to join the Foxes in a blow to other Premier League outfits, such as Arsenal, who are also said to be interested in his signature.
Ultimately, for Deane, it is a move that makes a lot of sense. Reacting to the news, the ex-Leicester star said:
“He’s a good player. He has proven pedigree in the Premier League. Christian Fuchs has been released so could come in and slot in there.
“So he could be one that fits in quite well, saves them money.”
Indeed, Bertrand is a defender with a lot of experience after spells with Chelsea, Aston Villa and most recently Southampton.
Across those spells, the 2012 Champions League winner made close to 260 Premier League appearances, becoming an England international along the way.
So if Brendan Rodgers feels his side needs some more experience, then Bertrand could be a good option in that regard.
