Portuguese midfielder seeks Leicester exit

Leicester City midfielder Adrien Silva wants to leave the club before Thursday, either on loan or on a permanent basis.

The 29 year old Portuguese international, part of the victorious team that won Euro 2016, finds himself out of favour at The King Power Stadium, and has only made five appearances for the team this season under manager Claude Puel, three of which came in the Carabao Cup.

Now, as The Guardian reports, Silva has reached the limit of his patience, and with offers made for him from a number of European clubs, he wants to bring his unhappy spell in the East Midlands to an end.

Silva famously was signed from Sporting Lisbon in the summer of 2017 on transfer deadline day, but an administrative error meant that the necessary paperwork was filed 14 seconds late, and he was forced to wait until the January of the following year before he could play for his new club.

Since then, he has done little to justify the £22 million that Leicester paid for him, making a total of 19 Premier League appearances in all.
