LEICESTER CITY’S UNSETTLED striker Leonardo Ulloa has threatened to go on strike to force a deadline day transfer to Sunderland.
Ulloa handed in a transfer request two weeks ago but the Premier League champions have reportedly rejected a bid from Spanish club Alaves because manager Claudio Ranieri would prefer to keep him.
The 30-year-old Ulloa posted on his Twitter account: “With all respect for LCFC FANS. I feel betrayed by Ranieri and let down by the club.
I will not play again for them…”
Ulloa is disgruntled after starting just once in the Premier League this season and he has not been offered a new deal after helping the Foxes win the title last season.
The Argentine added on Sky Sports News: “I can’t understand the situation or why they don’t let me continue playing my football somewhere else.
“If I stay at the club it’s going to affect seriously my career and my future. The best thing for both parties is that they sell me to another club.”
The Foxes have reportedly rejected a £8 million (€9m) bid by Sunderland. The deadline for transfers is 11pm tonight.
