Young Leicester midfielder Michael Cain impressed during an enjoyable spell with Blackpool last season in League Two, and was even better the season before whilst on loan in League One with Walsall.
Although his name suggests he should be on the set of a Hollywood blockbuster, this youngster’s stage is the lower levels of the EFL, and a permanent home at this level may be found this summer as the player’s contract at Leicester is set to expire this summer.
It was mentioned that Cain impressed during a loan spell with Walsall in the 2014-15 season, and manager Jon Whitney should strongly consider a permanent switch for the promising 22 year old.
Born in Luton, Cain joined the Leicester academy in 2011, but failed to make a first team appearance at the King Power despite being held in high regard by staff at the former Premier League champions.
Dropping down to League One on a permanent basis would be an excellent move for the player, who will undoubtedly grow and develop whilst learning his trade in the trenches of League One midfield battles.
Walsall will view the player as an immediate first team challenger, but will also look to the future and analyse the potential sell on value of Cain should he impress at the Bescot Stadium.
The Saddlers know exactly what Cain is about having had him on loan for a season, and adding the player to the club on a permanent basis would mark an excellent piece of business by Whitney.
