Leonardo Ulloa wants to leave Leicester


Sky understands Ulloa has not been offered an improved contract and fears his first-team chances may be limited following Leicester’s activity in the transfer market, including the signing of striker Ahmed Musa from CSKA Moscow.

A number of Spanish clubs are understood to be interested in Ulloa, although the 29-year-old would prefer to remain in the Premier League.

The striker played a key role in Leicester’s march to the Premier League title last season, appearing in 29 games and scoring a number of important goals in the latter part of the campaign.
