    Wasn't the Sporting Lisbon President gazumping us by constantly delaying and putting the price up, which is why it went to the last day?

    Well given that we wanted him in January, he should have been the first name on the hit list come the end of the season, Drinkwater or no Drinkwater. Had we have started earlier, even with the shenanigans of the Sporting Lisbon president we should have had it over the line well before the deadline.

    Poor bloke. Hope he’s making sure he’s mentally as well as physically fit.

    I would be really annoyed as well. Especially as sporting and Leicester and Leicester have removed themselves from all responsibility. They are literally playing with someones livelyhood and it could potentially be his last chance at a world cup and if Ndidi, and Iborra play as they are. He might not get a chance in the first team

    Sporting played silly games with the player's interests; Leicester didn't want to press the matter until they had shifted Drinkwater; time was running out and extra time wasn't sufficient to get it over the line. Pity the poor bloke getting mixed up with a collection of idiots. But Soundman is right the clubs have ducked responsibility. I've always struggled to see where FIFA are to blame.
