    Llorente - sounds good

    Just copied this in re another of our acquisitions - sounds promising

    The 27-year-old completed 99% of his passes in his last game for Spain against Portugal, and kept Cristiano Ronaldo quiet for 90 minutes we believe he is more than ready for Leicester if declared fit.

    Read somewhere that one of the reasons Bielsa wanted him was that he was the only player anywhere in Europe that had a higher completed pass rate than White(86%).

    So would him and Koch be the first choice CB's if both fit and able?

    I think Koch and Lorente were viewed as being first choice CBs. I also think that Llorente was considered cover for Kalvin.

    Ayling Koch Cooper Lorende

    Allows us to play 3 at the back too as an option and believe that came into the decision too (certain Mr Hay)
