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.

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.
