Leicester City have a decision to make regarding the future of Cengiz Ünder.

The Turkey international is on loan at the King Power Stadium from Serie A side Roma with an obligation to buy clause inserted in the contract.

However, in order for that clause to be triggered, the 23-year-old needs to reach a certain amount of appearances this campaign – a number which he has not yet reached according to reports.

The fee for any permanent deal for Ünder is believed to be €23m, as reported in Italian publication Corriere dello Sport, who claim that it is more than likely the player will end up becoming a permanent fixture at Leicester.

It hasn’t explicitly been revealed exactly how many appearances Ünder needs to make in order for the €23m purchase clause to be activated, but by the suggestions of the Italian press it is likely to happen before the season is out.

Interestingly though, Leicester gaffer Brendan Rodgers has used the midfielder sparingly – just 12 appearances in all competitions this season – and he hasn’t played a single Premier League minute since mid-December.

Ünder’s future at the club solely rests in the hands of the Foxes boss, who will no doubt be aware of the stipulations of the deal with Roma.

Rodgers does have the option to leave the Turkey man in the shadows for the second half of the campaign if he feels that €23m may be better invested elsewhere.
