These two Craig Shakespeare signings have only two Leicester City appearances between them.
The November international break is a checkpoint which signals that we are roughly a third of the way through the season.
This is, in most cases, a long enough time for judgements to be made on the millions of pounds worth of summer signings.
As BBC Sport reports, the Austrian was signed by Craig Shakespeare on a season-long loan from Bayer Leverkusen on deadline day, and yet he featured in only one of the sacked manager’s Premier League squads.
The defender's only appearances for Leicester so far have been in the Carabao Cup, despite his international pedigree of 60 caps, and Champions League experience with Leverkusen, Dynamo Kiev and FC Basel.
The 26-year-old has provided the type of established defensive cover which could have come at a much greater cost, so, although the player would liked to have been involved much more, it has been a shrewd move by the Foxes.
New boss Claude Puel has named Dragovic on the bench for each of his two games in charge, which could suggest that he is considering taking a look at his continental class, over Wes Morgan’s bullish English approach.
Dragovic has been top billing compared to Jakupovic, who has not made a single appearance yet for the Foxes. He has made the squad for three Carabao Cup games, but has had to watch Ben Hamer keep goal from the bench.
The Swiss was one of the best stoppers in the Premier League during the second half of last season, and it has been a surprise that he has been third choice behind Hamer, whose last top-flight outing came in January 2015.
According to The Sun, Jakupovic joined Leicester on a three-year deal for a £2.5m fee. That is £2.5m completely wasted by the Foxes, and a deal that the 33-year-old must be hopeful of getting out of before long.
