Leicester City are plotting a move for former Everton defender Conor Coady.

TEAMtalk have reported that the Foxes will look to snap the defender up after the Toffees rejected the chance to sign him permanently.

Conor Coady joined Everton loan from Wolves last season and made 24 appearances, however the club opted against paying £4.5 million for his services this summer.

However, it now appears that Coady’s future could remain outside of the Premier League.

Leicester reportedly see the 30-year-old as a sensible addition following their relegation, with Calgary Soyuncu and Daniel Amartey leaving the King Power Stadium on free transfers.

Coady helped Wolves win promotion from the Championship in the 2017-18 season and could be a coup for the Foxes given his previous success in the top flight.

Will Everton regret not signing Conor Coady?

A permanent deal for Conor Coady was definitely the easiest option for Everton, who are in need of some heavy recruitment across the whole squad.

Sean Dyche currently only has four options in the heart of his defence and will need to make up for Coady’s return to the Midlands in the coming weeks.

While it seems like a questionable decision now, if the Toffees can snap up a couple of defenders before August’s opening match then all will be forgotten.
