So as the title vaguely outlines, I have decided to start a new save with Leicester City with the addition of a single rule, which is that I will only be able to sign English players.
Fortunately Leicester have a large number of first team players that are English so have a pretty secure foundation for the save. I did think about trying to sell all our foreign players straight away but figured it was going to be a rather manic opening transfer window, so have just decided to gradually sell them on as I begin to bring in replacements.
Leicester City really shot to fame on the global stage following the incredible 2015/16 season, crowning them Premier League Champions
Jamie Vardy - The club's talisman, who leads from the front and one of the few regular starters that that was part of that title winning season. At the age of 32 he is now in his prime years and may only have a few seasons left in him leading the line. However, he is still an integral part of this squad and will be hoping his goals can bag as a European spot come the end of the season.
James Maddison - The newly capped attacking midfielder will be pulling the strings for us in midfield. He will undoubtably draw a lot of attention from the so called "Big Six" so will have my work cut out to keep hold of him but is a player I will be looking to build the team around.
Ben Chilwell - The young leftback is a product of the clubs academy and despite being only 22 appears to be the number one contender for the England shirt. He is another player that is constantly being linked to the "Big Six" but again will not be for sale at any price.
Harvey Barnes - He is one of my favourite players at the club and another to graduate from the academy. He is still a way off the England radar but his pace and direct style of play cause him to be a real threat down either wing.
Hamza Choudhury - He is the third highly talented youngster in the first team squad that has worked his way up from the academy. He's a ball winning midfielder that is largely an understudy to Wilfred Ndidi at present, but will soon be a first team choice in that role i'm sure.
Full Starting Squad Overview
So we currently have just 10 English players in the Senior Squad, which means I have a lot of work cut out. We should eventually be able to generate some decent revenue from the sales of players like Ndidi and Tielemans but as we all know the Value of English players on the transfer market is massively overpriced, so bringing in similar level replacements wont be easy.
