Leicester City’s transfer window saw them rejecting offers from Fulham as they attempted to sign the centre-back Liam Moore and despite making a bid of €2.5 million, it was not enough to lure him out of the Championship club.

Fulham also had their bids for the 21 years old Jeff Schlupp player of Leicester City denied. The head coach Nigel Pearson has already stated just how difficult the last 2 transfer windows have been as he has had to reject the interest for some of his promising players and the tactician has no intention in selling some of his rising stars.

The goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel is another performer of his squad that was wanted by clubs outside of the Championship league with Ac.Milan and Manchester United charging their way in attempt to sign the Danish goalkeeper.

“It is obviously an honor to be linked with clubs of that nature. But you know it is part and parcel of the game so I can’t comment too much. It is the way it is. It is a sign you are doing something right and that is great. It is recognition but I don’t need people to talk about me in that way because I know when I have played well and when I have had a bad game.” Schmeichel said.
Nigel Pearson did allow however Wigan Athletic on acquiring the 24 years old player Martyn Waghorn on a loan deal that will be seeing Waghorn playing with Wigan Athletic for the rest of the season.

The head coach of Wigan Athletic, Uwe Rosler praised the player he managed to sign from Leicester City as he considers Waghorn to be a versatile performer that can help them in the Championship league.

“He is a versatile attacking player who can operate in all three positions in the front line, and he also gives us great quality from set-piece situations’’
