West Bromwich Albion

Defender looks to be on the way out as Stoke, Forest, West Brom, Birmingham and Sheffield United all could be in the chase



Although Leicester manager Enzo Maresca mentioned rotation prior to the Millwall match, he did not alter his back four lineup and once more benched Conor Coady. The England international’s usage is a peculiar circumstance because we had anticipated that he and Harry Souttar would be rotated this season.

We don’t really get why it’s necessary to keep more players fresh during a 46-game season; the only explanation we can think of is that the player must be searching for a way out, since we won’t be surprised to see Coady around for very long.

With so many games still to play, Coady needs to play frequently at this point in his career. As the Leicester team currently demonstrates, you also need to have a strategy for rotation because, with the greatest team in the league, they should have mastered the system.

In light of this, Conor Coady may be leaving the team, perhaps saying goodbye to Enzo Maresca, since he has expressed in the past that players who desire to leave the team should move on and considers it while making his choices. Ben Nelson’s selection early in the season did result in him choosing over Coady and Souttar, ignoring the two experienced internationals.

Conor Coady was a summer transfer target for Sheffield United and Stoke, but he chose to go to Leicester instead, which seems strange at this point. Although Maresca has stated that Coady lacks the speed to sprint down opponent attackers when pressing high, what he did show against Bournemouth was undoubtedly enough to get him more starts. Under new manager Nuno Espirito Santo, who formerly managed Wolves, Forest may also be considering Conor Coady as a contender.

Because Coady is well-known in the Midlands, it shouldn’t come as a surprise if Birmingham and West Bromwich decide to pursue him after the season comes to an end and they are aware of their circumstances.

Given the treatment he has had since joining the club, it would be somewhat shocking to see him remain under Enzo Maresca at Leicester. One clue to look out for is that Wout Faes might definitely use a little break before the following game versus Plymouth.

Given that Coady is under contract with Leicester through June 2026, this is also a sensitive topic. Due to the ongoing discussions surrounding transfer embargoes, FFP, and other punishments, it is possible that other players would depart, which would allow Coady to reclaim the playing time he so richly deserves.
