Over the past couple of days, there have been a number of rumours suggesting that Bright Osayi-Samuel could be heading to Leicester following a breakdown in his transfer to Club Brugge.
However, if Walfoot are to be believed, that isn’t quite the case, as they maintain the Queens Park Rangers winger ‘was and still is very close’ to sealing a move to the Belgian side.
What’s holding up the deal is that the 22-year-old ‘wants to wait until the end of the league in order to take the best decision possible for himself’.
Articles have been published about Leicester City’s attempts to hijack the deal, and whether they qualify for the Champions League or not could be crucial.
Walfoot state the QPR man ‘wants to play’ in the elite European competition next year, and with Brugge already qualified via winning the league, they have the advantage.
Furthermore, the website state Philippe Clément’s side ‘aren’t in a rush’, as their first port of call is to win the Belgian Cup with the current squad before moving onto summer recruits.
