Leicester City Premier League squad: Iheanacho and Vardy retained, title-winners Fuchs and Morgan released

Who is staying with the FA Cup winners?

The 20 Premier League clubs that took part in the 2020/21 season have submitted lists of players they will be retaining in their squads, and ones they will be releasing.

All clubs must submit their respective lists by June 23.

It is worth noting that player contracts typically will run until June 30, and therefore players who are soon to be out of contract are still on the 'retained' list at the time of publishing.

We're at the halfway stage which means a look at Leicester City.

The Foxes were top-four challengers for much of the campaign but stumbled as the finish line approached and a defeat to Tottenham on the final day saw them miss out on Champions League qualification.

That doesn't mean their season wasn't a success, though. Youri Tielemans' screamer at Wembley was worthy of winning any FA Cup final and gave a fitting send-off to club stalwarts Wes Morgan and Christian Fuchs who played such a crucial part in Leicester's Premier League title win five years ago.
