Our 25 man squad for season 2019/20

As far as I know, the 25 doesn’t need to be finalised until after the normal deadline, not the self-imposed Premier League one.

Matty James apparently has loan offers from several Championship clubs and the decision is with him - so hopefully that should be another one out.


Well-Known Member
Unfortunately he got injured again trying to sit down on the first one, so they've all pulled out of the prospective moves now.
Just as he put his pen to the paper to sign a contract the noise of the biro lightly scratching the paper caused his eardrums to burst.

I think he will end up at Villa.
maybe, but on a free transfer on a incentive filled deal he would be a much better back up to Vardy than what we currently have, I'm not sure what strikers that are available right now that would come here knowing Vardy is going to start no matter what

Schmeichel / Ward / Ricardo / Amartey / Evans / Soyuncu / Morgan / Benkovic / Chilwell / Fuchs / Ndidi / Choudhury / Tielemans / Albrighton / Maddison / Barnes / Perez / Gray / Vardy / Iheanacho / Maguire
Jakupovic / Iverson / Knight / Moore / Hughes / Elder / Mendy / King / James / Silva / Thomas / Kapustka / Diabate / Ghezzal / Slimani / Uche / Loft / Praet

Just the 33 O21 players now for 25 places.

So we need to move at least 8 of the above out still.

No we don't. Hughes, Thomas, Kapustka and Uche are young enough to play for the under 23s, so it's not a problem if they stay.
But it would probably be good for them to be loaned out. Still a few weeks left before the transfer window closes for clubs below the Championship.

I realise this isn't the 25 man squad listing, but squad numbers are as follows:

1. Kasper Schmeichel
2. James Justin
3. Ben Chilwell
4. Çağlar Söyüncü
5. Wes Morgan
6. Jonny Evans
7. Demarai Gray
8. Youri Tielemans
9. Jamie Vardy
10. James Maddison
11. Marc Albrighton
12. Danny Ward
13. Islam Slimani
14. Kelechi Iheanacho
15. Harry Maguire
16. Filip Benković
17. Ayoze Pérez
18. Daniel Amartey
19. Harvey Barnes
20. Hamza Choudhury
21. Ricardo Pereira
22. Matty James
23. Adrien Silva
24. Nampalys Mendy
25. Wilfred Ndidi
27. Fousseni Diabaté
28. Christian Fuchs
31. Rachid Ghezzal
35. Eldin Jakupović
37. Andy King
Harvey Barnes will now wear number 15.
Anyone who's bought a new shirt with Barnes 19 on the back can get a free replacement from the club shop.

City have submitted their 25 man squad for the first half of the season. It doesn't get published until the end of the month so the LM have predicted who is in and who is out. They don't mention Hughes, Uche, Thomas or Kapustka, who are O21 but U23.

Kasper Schmeichel, Danny Ward, Eldin Jakupovic.

Jonny Evans, Wes Morgan, Caglar Soyuncu, Filip Benkovic, Ricardo Pereira, James Justin*, Ben Chilwell, Christian Fuchs, Daniel Amartey.

Wilfred Ndidi, Hamza Choudhury, Papy Mendy, Youri Tielemans, James Maddison, Dennis Praet, Andy King, Matty James, Marc Albrighton, Harvey Barnes, Demarai Gray.

Jamie Vardy, Kelechi Iheanacho, Ayoze Perez

*Doesn't count towards 25-man total.

(This squad would see City meet the homegrown player rule with 13 players qualifying. The Premier League requires 12 homegrown players, a rise of four from last season.)

The players who miss out
Rachid Ghezzal, Fousseni Diabate, Adrien Silva, Islam Slimani

And it's not set in stone. It can be changed, with the permission of the league. So if we sell someone in the 25 man squad presumably we'd have no problem giving someone else their place.

And we wouldn't necessarily name a full list of 25. If the likes of James and King aren't going to play, we could leave slots open to give us the chance to sign free agents.
