Celtic officials have been left unhappy by Leicester City’s attempts to lure 16-year-old midfielder Tsoanelo Letsosa to the club.

According to Football Insider, Leicester have a strong interest in Letsosa and have been monitoring him since his Victory Shield performances in November.

The report claims Brendan Rodgers’ assistant Kolo Toure has particularly taken a liking to the teenage star.

However, the interest is said to have not helped the Celtic hierarchy and Rodgers’ damaged relationship, following his swift exit mid-way through last season.

As the Scottish giants neared a historic treble, the Northern Irishman, and his backroom staff, switched Parkhead for the King Power Stadium.


Letsosa, of South African descent, impressed scouts as he helped Scotland Under-16s become joint-winners of the Victory Shield last year.

It’s no surprise Leicester have been linked though, with Callum McGregor and Odsonne Edouard just a couple of Celtic stars Rodgers has been reportedly in for since his departure.

However, I think that his tarnished relationship with Celtic could seriously hurt Leicester’s chances of securing Letsosa on this occasion.

The Foxes most probably aren’t the only club monitoring the Under-16 international either, so realistically speaking, I think it could potentially be a difficult ask to bring him to the King Power.

Was Brendan Rodgers right to abandon Celtic mid-season?

Yes, he took an upgrade!

No, he should've waited to the summer.
