With his contract originally set to expire on June 30th, Leicester City made sure they had Nampalys Mendy available until the end of the Premier League season.
The Frenchman agreed to extend his deal for another month, allowing Brendan Rodgers to call on him in the coming weeks if he needs to.
However, Le10 Sport in France are reporting something a bit different, claiming that Leicester have since offered Mendy a new contract to ‘continue the adventure’, suggesting he could extend his stay at the King Power Stadium beyond the current campaign.
If that is the case, it’s a bit of a blow for those who were interested in signing the defensive midfielder on a free, which was the case for former Foxes manager Claude Puel at Saint-Étienne.
Le10 explain Mendy ‘has yet to make a decision’, so, having appeared just seven times under Rodgers this season, he may still decide to look elsewhere for more regular football.
If it’s money he’s after, however, then this will certainly fit the bill far more than a return to Ligue 1, where very few clubs would be able to match what Leicester will currently be offering.
