James Chester could be the subject of bids of £8m from a number of Premier League clubs, according to Daily Telegraph journalist Matt Law.
The Welshman was an integral part of our backline last season that had the third-best defence in the Championship, but the club’s financial troubles could prompt the sale of one of the squad’s most valuable assets.
Many have tipped our no.5 to be the club’s captain next season, replacing John Terry, but the future of senior players at the club can no longer be guaranteed.
While it has been confirmed that we have seen off the prospect of administration, there is still a cash flow problem on top of the reported £40m shortfall due to the Financial Fair Play.
Along with Jack Grealish, Chester is a player who commands interest from the top flight, and offers from the Premier League for the 29-year-old are likely to be received in the coming weeks.
