‘It’s a soap opera’ - Puel hits out at ‘fake news’ over Fofana to Leicester links

The ex-Foxes boss has suggested that his former club will have a hard time securing the signature of the centre-back this summer

Saint-Etienne head coach Claude Puel has warned there is a great deal of “fake news” surrounding centre-back Wesley Fofana's proposed move to Leicester.

Speaking on Thursday, Fofana told L'Equipe he would be "crazy" to turn down the opportunity of a switch to the Premier League club and said he had accepted a contract offer from them.

Saint-Etienne, though, have not accepted any offer, despite reports of a £27m million (€29m/$34m) deal.
