Leicester City are ‘set to sign’ Steffen as James Maddison makes a breakthrough at Spurs

Welcome to LeicestershireLive’s coverage of all things Foxes, on Wednesday, June 28.

New No. 1

Leicester City are “set to sign” Manchester City goalkeeper Zack Steffen, it has been claimed.

The Citizens shot-stopper spent last season on loan at Championship side Middlesborough where he played 44 times. He helped them reach the play-off semi-finals where they lost to Coventry City.

And the USA international crossed paths with new Foxes boss Enzo Maresca at the Etihad. Steffan was at the club when the Italian worked with the club’s youth team before becoming Pep Guardiola’s assistant last summer.

And talkSPORT claim a deal to bring Steffen to the King Power Stadium this summer is close. The 28-year-old is adapting to play from the back, which Maresca is likely to want his team to play next season.

Full of wolves

Leicester City are “closing in” on the signing of Wolves defender Conor Coady.

The 30-year-old spent last season on loan at Everton, but the Premier League side rejected an option to buy him this summer, opening the door for Leicester to swoop.

According to the Mirror, City hope to have the transfer “completed this weekend” before the players return to training at Seagrave on Monday. Leicester are said to have “beat off strong competition in the Premier League” for the England international, something of a coup for Enzo Maresca who will get a top-quality player and a proven leader on his hands.
