Leicester boss confirms his interest in Leicester star during spell with the Saints
Since Puel joined Leicester in October youngster Demarai Gray has had a lot of game time.
Gray has featured in most games and has impressed fans across the country since Puel joined and fans have been calling for an England call-up.
Just realised Demarai Gray hasn't been called up to the England team but Lingard has ?

Demarai Gray for England?

Fail to understand how players like Solanke and Cork have had their England debuts; whereas Demarai Gray isn't even considered.

A bit surprised Demarai Gray didn't get an England call up. He's looked very good for Leicester & England's U21's over the last six months.

The Foxes boss is obviously a huge fan of Demarai and has openly admitted he tried to sign him while at Southampton.
“I saw him last season in the Under-21 games and he can play in different positions for me
“I wanted him before when I was at Southampton” “But I am happy he is in the colours of Leicester and that I found him in my squad because he is a valuable player for the team.”
It’s safe to say that Demarai has cemented his place in the starting line up and if he continues his performances an England call up is just around the corner.
