Jannick Vestergaard outlines future plans following poor Leicester City season

Leicester City defender Jannick Vestergaard has confirmed that he will remain at the King Power Stadium over the summer, despite a poor debut season under Brendan Rodgers.

The Danish defender joined the club from fellow Premier League side Southampton following the horror injury sustained by Wesley Fofana in pre-season, forcing the Foxes back into the market for cover.

And, despite 7 appearances in Leicester’s first 9 Premier League games, he was quickly dropped to the bench, with his last start for the club coming all the way back in mid-January.

However, that has not changed the 29 year old’s plans for the future, with the Dane telling reporters that he intends to stay put this season despite reports suggesting otherwise.

‘I have no plans to leave Leicester this summer. My intention is definitely to play more next season, and I am sure that I will be ready for the World Cup in Qatar’, he revealed. ‘I will be fully motivated when I return to pre-season with Leicester.”

‘Obviously it is important to play matches, but the last two months without playing did not make me another player,’ he continued. ‘On the contrary, I am in a better physical shape right now and therefore I feel more comfortable on the pitch than half a year ago.

‘It was tough coming directly from this unforgettable experience of the Euros, that was also exhausting both mentally and physically, to a new club without any pre-season, and I was hit by both different injuries and illness during my first months at the club.’

Leicester set for busy summer?

While Leicester City’s targets this summer are as of yet unclear, it seems as though they could focus on central midfield.

Both Youri Tielemans and summer signing Boubacary Soumare are expected to depart the midlands ahead of the 22/23 season, and the Foxes will need replacements even if Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall seems to look the part.

They will be boosted by the absence of European football, but will nonetheless need to freshen up a squad that often looked tired and disjointed across last campaign.
