Get the weekend started right here!

Welcome back to your favorite almost daily tradition, the Leicester Links.  Lots going on in the world of Leicester City so let's dive right in.

TRANSFERS, TRANSFERS, TRANSFERS, AND I THINK I SEE A FEW MORE TRANSFERS: With the season basically over (apologies to those of you still fighting for those last few European places), it's almost time to start looking ahead to the summer transfer window.  As expected, Leicester City news abounds in the world of rumors.  Could Gianluca Lapadula be on his way to King Power Stadium?  Could West Ham make a bid for Jamie Vardy?  Are Leicester in the running to sign Deportivo La Coruna standout Lucas Perez?  Oh transfer rumors, you never stop being fun.

WHAT ELSE DID YOU EXPECT?: Leicester City dominated the Premier League Player of the Season nominees, with five Foxes being nominated for the award.

CAPITALISM: A fan (I can confirm it is NOT our own Shane Evans) is selling 10 jars of the air from Leicester City's final home game against Everton.  In that same vein, Jamie Vardy's lookalike has been given time off to pursue riches in his newfound career.

LEICESTER ABROAD: An absolutely fantastic story from the Leicester Mercury looks at how Eddie Plater has gotten several wounded US military veterans to become Leicester fans through his volunteer efforts.  Good on you, Eddie!

HE'S OURS, YOU CAN'T HAVE HIM: Leicester City are set to offer Claudio Ranieri a new contract, but Ranieri admits he may be interested in the Italy job.

Until Monday, enjoy the last weekend of the season!
