Despite the failed move, he has featured for Craig Shakespeare's men - though has been accused of not giving his best for the team.

Even at this, his teammate is sure that the one time English Premier League player of the season will soon return to the form that attracted top European outfits.

“He’s had a good start to the season and against the bigger teams he might find it a bit more difficult,” Morgan told Leicester Mercury.

“But he’s always been spot on with his attitude so far and he knows that we need him.

“I’m sure he’ll be at his best as soon as he can.”
