With media speculation stating as fact that Leicester City had gone back in with a second and improved offer for Burnley centre half Michael Keane, local Burnley media and the Leicester Mercury both say their sources have told them that the nationals are wrong, and that Claudio Ranieri has not told the club to go back with a second offer.

With it reported a few days back that Leicester had made a £10million offer and seen it knocked back, the last few days everybody and anybody have been reporting bids of £12million and even £15million being knocked back – but the fact is Leicester haven’t yet gone back at all.

The Mercury suggest that the sums quoted are from the first offer which was £10million upfront, but with add on’s totally a £15million price tag.

They also say that whilst one offer for Watford striker Troy Deeney was made – suggested £25million total deal – again, contrary to national reports there have been no second offer for him either.

So basically, as is often during transfer nonsense time, few people know anything, and the nationals just repeat and rehash to fill column inches.

One fresh link is 24 year old Brazilian striker Eduardo Sasha. The Daily Star (yes I know) re-run speculation from Brazilian media that we have had a £7million offer for him rejected, and apparently the player has attracted interest of Arsenal and Manchester United in the past.

The original reports seem to come from GloboEsporte and Radio Guacha.
