Leicester's transfers rated

2015-09-02 13:57

Cape Town - A good but not great window for Leicester City with the season's finest performers coming from players already at the club before the window opened.

Leicester City's transfers rated: 6.5/10

The additions of Shinji Okazaki and Gokhan Inler represent good work while bringing Nathan Dyer in on deadline day was another piece of good work. A real pity that Esteban Cambiasso called it quits with the Foxes.

Transfer summary:

In: Christian Fuchs (Schalke, free), Robert Huth (Stoke, undisclosed), Shinji Okazaki (Mainz, undisclosed), N'Golo Kante (Caen, undisclosed), Yohan Benalouane (Atalanta, undisclosed), Gokhan Inler (Napoli, £5.5m), Nathan Dyer (Swansea, loan)

Out: Zoumana Bakayogo (released), Paul Gallagher (released), Conrad Logan (released), Gary Taylor-Fletcher (released), Matthew Upson (MK Dons, free), David Nugent (Middlesbrough, undisclosed), Paul Konchesky (QPR, loan), Chris Wood (Leeds, undisclosed), Esteban Cambiasso (Olympiacos, free), Ben Hamer (Bristol City, loan), Ryan Watson (Northampton Town, loan), Tom Lawrence (Blackburn Rovers, loan)

Best bit of business: It's between Inler and Okazaki - both have the potential to add a lot of value at Leicester.

Worst bit of business: Cambiasso's decision to depart the club could yet have disastrous consequences.
