SCHLUPP ’N AWAY

Midweek Sport - - TV GUIDE -

JEF­FREY SCHLUPP has stunned Le­ices­ter by re­ject­ing a new con­tract.

The Ghana in­ter­na­tional has snubbed the Foxes’ ini­tial of­fer to alert Premier League clubs Liver­pool, Stoke and West Brom.

Schlupp, 18, is one of the most highly-rated kids in the Cham­pi­onship af­ter im­press­ing former Foxes gaffer Sven Go­ran Eriks­son.

The winger has also been tar­geted by Crys­tal Palace as a po­ten­tial re­place­ment for Wil­fried Zaha, who could be sold in Jan­uary.

Le­ices­ter are keen to keep Schlupp but talks have stalled as the player wants a longer deal.
