According to The Mirror, Leicester City will leave Demarai Gray out of their squad to face West Ham United in the Premier League this weekend.
It’s claimed that Leicester plan to leave him out because they want to sell him in the final days of the transfer window.
Gray wasn’t in the squad to face Manchester City last weekend, and his exile is set to continue as Leicester look to offload him in the coming days.
Leicester haven’t yet put a valuation on the 24-year-old’s head, but the £50,000-a-week winger has shown no interest in a new deal; his current contract expires in 2021.
Tottenham are long-term admirers, whilst there is also interest from German clubs despite bagging just two goals and three assists in the Premier League last season.
A new suitor has emerged this week, with the Daily Mail claiming that Leeds United now want to sign Gray to bolster Marcelo Bielsa’s squad.
The Whites are seeking a speedy winger to bring more pace and trickery in the final third, with Gray one name Leeds are considering late in the window.
Leicester seem ready to let Gray go, and their stance on his participation against West Ham will give Leeds real hope of securing a deal.
