The Foxes stars have differing long-term prospects at the King Power Stadium.

Leicester City have been hard at work in training this week ahead of a clash with Middlesbrough this weekend.

The club’s first-team have been pictured in training ahead of the game and there have been some interesting participants in the sessions at Belvoir.

One such player is Nampalys Mendy.

The 24-year-old Frenchman was signed from Nice this summer with the aim of replacing N’Golo Kante – who had departed for Chelsea in the summer.

Unfortunately, his career at Leicester has been stunted by injury trouble. He has played just one game for Leicester since his move from Nice in the summer and Leicester fans want to see him back in regular action.

Another, almost forgotten player, spotted in training was Yohan Benalouane.

Signed last summer from Atalanta he has not played a single game for Leicester this season and his last appearance for the club was in the 2-0 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup back in January.

He does however continue to train with the club, although his future with the club does not appear to be in the first-team.
