Shakespeare confirms Adrien Silva training with Leicester

Adrien Silva

Leicester are monitoring Bacary Sagna's situation as boss Craig Shakespeare looks to bolster his team's defence.

The Foxes had agreed a £22 million deal to bring the 28-year-old to the club from Liga NOS outfit Sporting Lisbon and had settled personal terms with the player, only for Federation Internationale de Football Association to reject the deal after the registration was completed 14 seconds late over the deadline (Sky Sports).

Silva had previously been banned from even training with Leicester, but Shakespeare has confirmed the Portuguese has linked up with his new teammates.

He said: 'We have looked at him before but we haven't spoken about him recently.

Whether Leicester's decision was intentional or not, it has certainly amused fans - let's hope Federation Internationale de Football Association share their sense of humour. The other processes are in the hands of the club.

"I speak to (Silva) on a regular basis during training to make sure he is fully focused on what his requirements are".

The Foxes aren't believed to be the only club interest in Sagna's services, with West Ham, Crystal Palace and Serie A side Torino all reportedly monitoring his situation, but this is the first admission on Shakespeare's part that they have previously considered signing the French global.

"The camaraderie and the banter is brilliant in and around the changing rooms and I wanted to integrate him as quickly as possible and I can do that now", added Shakespeare.
