Leicester target Ryan Bertrand already in Saints contract talks
Last Thursday, the Times claimed that Leicester City are considering a move for 30-year-old Ryan Bertrand.
According to reporter Gary Jacob, “Leicester City are increasingly resigned to Ben Chilwell leaving for Chelsea”.
In the event that Chelsea land Chiwell, the Times listed Bertrand as a possible replacement left-back at the King Power Stadium:
Brendan Rodgers, the Leicester manager, has shown interest in Ryan Bertrand, who has one year left on his contract at Southampton.
Bertrand, who will turn 31 in August, was coached by Rodgers at Chelsea’s academy and played under him on loan at Reading.
Bertrand has made 24 Premier League appearances this season for Southampton.
He’s scored one league goal and chipped in with one league assist.
Yet, the Sun’s Tom Barclay now reports that Southampton are hoping to agree a contract extension with Bertrand.
