Leicester are the latest team to show interest in Hull's Harry Maguire, but with Tottenham, Everton and Newcastle also in the hunt where should he go?

Interest in centre-back Harry Maguire is increasing following Hull City's relegation from the Premier League and according to the Mirror, Leicester City are the latest to join the chase.

With so many top flight sides apparently keen on signing the 24-year-old, what would actually be the best move for the player himself?


According to the Hull Daily Mail the Toffees are interested, with doubts over whether 34-year-old captain Phil Jagielka has what it takes to cut it at Goodison Park anymore.

Maguire - who has a physical presence and came through the ranks at Sheffield United - certainly has plenty in common with Jagielka and he is used to the three-man defence that Ronald Koeman has used this season from his time with the Tigers.

As mentioned the Foxes are new to this particular story and are perhaps looking for a long-term replacement for their own skipper, Wes Morgan.

At their best under both Claudio Ranieri and now Craig Shakespeare, Leicester are defensively resolute and their eagerness to shift the ball to the attackers quickly and directly makes enforcers like Maguire (and Morgan and Robert Huth) a good fit.

Newcastle United

Having confirmed their promotion from the Sky Bet Championship at the first time of asking, Magpies manager Rafael Benitez is already looking at recruitment and the Chronicle says Maguire will be offered to the club.

Yet despite both Newcastle and Benitez's reputation, the Hull defender should perhaps be wary of joining a side who will be among the favourites to get relegated next season when European prospects are on offer.

On the face of it Spurs, who the Sun report are interested, will be the most exciting prospect with a chance to join a young and talented squad making great strides under boss Mauricio Pochettino.

However, they also represent the option where first team appearances are likely to be the most limited, with Toby Alderweireld, Eric Dier and Jan Vertonghen the established choices. Of course in a three-man defence chances of game time are more increased should there be injuries and suspensions.
