25 man squad

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 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?

I can hear it now...

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

And repeat.

No Choudhury. Being loaned out?
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.
