Leicester City midfielder Nampalys Mendy has joined former club OGC Nice on a season-long loan deal.
The 25-year-old signed with the Foxes from Nice last summer on a four-year contract, for a fee of £13million, in the wake of N'Golo Kante's move to Chelsea. However, he was unable to meet expectations as his debut campaign was derailed by injury. The Frenchman picked up a troublesome ankle injury against Arsenal last August and was limited to just nine appearances. The temporary move away from the King Power Stadium will give Mendy a chance to continue his comeback from injury with his former club, where he played every match in 2015/16 as they finished fourth in the Ligue 1 table. His departure will afford Matty James a chance to continue seeing more playing time, while summer signing Vicente Iborra will also factor in once he returns to full fitness Aug 31 - 3:33 PM
