    We currently have 31 players to fit into a 25 player Premier League squad.

    Slimani and Ulloa look likely to leave. So that leaves us with four players to be left out - or sold/loaned out.

    The list of 31 is:

    Danny Ward
    Kasper Schmeichel
    Eldin Jakupovic
    Jonny Evans
    Ricardo Pereira
    Danny Simpson
    Ben Chilwell
    Wes Morgan
    Harry Maguire
    Christian Fuchs
    Yohan Benalouane
    Callum Elder
    Daniel Amartey
    Bartosz Kapustka
    James Maddison
    Demarai Gray
    Andy King
    Marc Albrighton
    Adrien Silva
    Vicente Iborra
    Matthew James
    Nampalys Mendy
    Onyinye Ndidi
    Kelechi Iheanacho
    Jamie Vardy
    Islam Slimani
    Shinji Okazaki
    Leonardo Ulloa
    Fousseni Diabate
    Çağlar Söyüncü
    Rachid Ghezzal

    Unless we already have transfers/loans for other players lined up, I would expect this:

    Ulloa to Mexico
    Slimani to Turkey
    Elder loaned to a lower division club.
    James left out (presumably still injured?)
    Benalouane left out
    Simpson/King left out

    If Söyüncü doesn't get a work permit we'd have to ask the Premier League for permission to replace him in the squad, which I think they'd allow in the circumstances.

    Kaputska to get dumped off abroad
    Ditto Benny
    King on loan to a Championship Club

    I think the most likely outcome will be Elder to go out on loan, Kaputska likewise or sold abroad and either James to be given a new role as chief bandage tester or King to go to a Championship side on loan.

    I liked the look of him in pre-season.

    That list is missing a Ghezzal, isn't it?

    Yes.

    He wasn't listed on the site copied the player list from. I've fixed it now.

    I think it will be

    Benny
    Kaputska
    Elder
    Slimani
    Ulloa

    That aren't included - based on Slimani and Ulloa leaving.

    If one of them stays then I think they'll be included at the expense of King.

    Can Championship clubs still sign players or did their window close at the same time?

    If King stays then I'd prefer us to keep him in the squad than James. And I want Simpson in the squad to provide back up.

    I think championship clubs can sign players but only on loan or loan with option to buy.

    I'm surprised we haven't announced squad numbers yet... I guess we're waiting for the window to shut to announce them, but usually announced much before the start of the season aren't they?

    Didn’t the window close 18 hours ago?

    He must pick the players with quality and give them good feeling to provide balance.

    I can hear it now...

    “Oh his name is Adrien Silva
    Leicester’s Number 23
    Yes he cost a fucking fortune
    But he’s still shit and that’s not alright with me”

    And repeat.

    No squad numbers for any of the academy players - maybe they'll be added in later. No number for Johnson either, for instance.

    Andy King down at 37! Poor Kingy. Otherwise no real movers.

    No number for Caglar yet - guess no work permit yet? I thought one of the new defenders would take #2 from Simpson.
