Lots of Wolves fans have had their say on Twitter to the news that Ryan Bennett will be joining Leicester City for the rest of the season.
According to reports from the BBC, Leicester have pretty much secured the transfer of the defender, who is looking to be used as cover for both Jonny Evans and Caglar Soyuncu at the heart of the Foxes’ defence.
The report states that it will be a loan deal which contains an option to buy, as well as an obligation to buy if he makes enough appearances for the club.
Express and Star journalist @NathanJudah tweeted about the story, stating just how important the player has been over the recent years, to which many fans responded with their heartfelt messages.

What happened to us not selling players without a replacement lined up? Cutrone, Vallejo and Bennett have all gone without any replacements?

The sale of Bennett is a bit of a risky one considering that the club are already a bit short on defenders. Considering that Jesus Vallejo has been allowed to depart and Willy Boly has only just returned from a long injury, there isn’t much room for comfort.
Furthermore, the use of Romain Saiss and Leander Dendoncker at centre back means that they have also limited their midfield options. In all honesty, three or four injuries could leave the club in a really bad position, with a lack of cover in both the central defence and forward options.
