Leo Ulloa: Wants to move on

Leicester City striker Leonardo Ulloa has reportedly told the club he wants to leave this summer.

The Argentinian striker made 29 appearances in Leicester’s title winning season last year but only started seven of those games.

Sky Sports News sources say the club aren’t willing to improve the 29-year-old’s contract and he could fall further down the pecking order following the arrival of forward Ahmed Musa from CSKA Moscow.

Swansea and a number of other Spanish clubs are interested in the former Brighton forward.

Ulloa, who has been at Leicester since 2014 after an £8millon transfer from the Seagulls, was largely a peripheral figure at the King Power stadium last season but scored some important goals including last minute goals against Norwich and West Ham.

While he has had offers from the continent, it is understood the player wants to remain in England and prove himself in the Premier League.

Leicester haven’t wasted any time strengthening their squad ahead of their title defence.

Musa and midfielder Nampalys Mendy are the most notable arrivals, joining for £16million and £13million respectively.
