According to a Danish newspaper, Leicester City have rejected a bid from Brentford for defender Jannik Vestergaard. The 29-year-old joined City last summer after the club suffered an injury crisis in defense, and he arrived from Southampton for a fee reported to be in the region of £15 million. Last season, the 6’6″ centre-back made just 10 Premier League appearances, four of which came off the bench. According to Danish outlet BT, City have turned down an approach from Brentford for the defender, despite the fact that their Danish manager Thomas Frank has shown a keen interest in several of his countrymen in the transfer market. It’s unclear whether Brentford will counter with a higher offer, but City are said to be willing to let him go. Jonny Evans reveals innovative Leicester City work at the Evian training camp : Brendan Rodgers issued a warning to Celtic following the Leicester City transfer link. Vestergaard said last month about his future, “Matches are extremely important.” After all, it’s more competitive to play in games than it is to train, but I haven’t gotten any worse as a football player in the last six months.” Rather, I feel better than I did in the autumn after a very, very brief pre-season, if any at all. Then I got a couple of injuries and became ill. So I’m feeling better now. I’m in better physical condition and feel more at ease on the field. “I believe it has gone well in the matches in which I have participated.” Of course, playing time is critical over time in order to be the best version of myself. I’m working very hard on it. I’ll be highly motivated to improve when I return to Leicester, and I believe a short break after this and a full pre-season will benefit me.” How should City’s defense look next season?
