Hull City's Harry Maguire celebrates scoring their first goal
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?

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.
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.
