Where Are They Now: The Final Leicester City Starting XI of 15/16

Kasper Schmeichel

Kasper Schmeichel still owns the number one shirt at Leicester City and the Danish keeper recently earned his 400th appearance for the club, and he now also boasts of 129 clean sheets with the Foxes.

At 34, Schmeichel is still competing with the very best in the league.

Danny Simpson

Danny Simpson optimised everything about the insanity of the Leicester title win in 2016 that year: a struggling defender who had six loans spells away from Manchester United looking to make a statement with the Foxes.

The right-back, however, stuck around for just three more seasons after lifting the Premier League, playing in 35 league games the following year, 28 the year after, but just six in his final year, which then forced the move to Huddersfield Town after his release from Leicester.

A year in the Championship with the Terriers would be all she wrote for Simpson and at 34, the Englishman remains clubless.

Marcin Wasilewski

Marcin Wasilewski is a name not remembered when speaking about the title win back in 2016, but the former Poland international managed to get four league appearances under his belt that year.

At 36, Wasilewski started instead of the usual Robert Huth as a result of his suspension on the final day of the season and he would stick around for one more year following the miracle of 2016, accumulating a sole appearance in the Premier League.

Wasilewski would depart for Wisła Kraków in 2017 and stay with the club until his retirement last year.

Wes Morgan

Club captain and the man who lifted the Premier League title, Wes Morgan, is still at the club, but the ex-Jamaica international can't really get into the starting XI anymore.

In fact, since the start of the 2019/20 season, Morgan has made just 14 league appearances for the Foxes, including just three this year.

He will forever be remembered as a legend at the club, but it does seem as if nine years of service is coming to an end, and at 36, Morgan may well retire at the end of this season.

Christian Fuchs

Another man who summed up quite beautifully the 5000/1 upset of the odds is Christian Fuchs. The Austrian signed for Leicester on a free in the season Leicester won the title, and was seen as an experienced man to help them stay up.

However, after five more years of service and with Ben Chilwell leaving for Chelsea, Fuchs has found himself gradually back in the team and competing with James Justin on a regular basis.

At 34, Fuchs is still an important part of the Foxes' setup, particularly as they continue to compete in the Europa League.

Danny Drinkwater

Danny Drinkwater is just another man who nobody expected to be an important member of a Premier League-winning team.

Drinkwater would make 35 appearances for Leicester that season and prove to be one of the most important players alongside N'Golo Kante in midfield. However, following one more year at the King Power Stadium, the Englishman would join Chelsea for an extraordinary fee of £35m, but make just 12 league appearances in three seasons.

The ex-Foxes man now resides in Turkey with Kasımpaşa after being loaned from Chelsea, who themselves are struggling and fighting relegation in the Super Lig.

N'Golo Kante

N'Golo Kante was arguably Leicester's best player in 2015/16 and the Frenchman would win the club's Players' Player of the Year that season and create a Premier League legacy for him, establishing himself as a true legend.

Kante would leave for Chelsea immediately after winning the title and win the league with the Blues that year as well, becoming one of only a few players in win the title back-to-back but with separate clubs.

Now, after a year of struggling to get into the Frank Lampard's side, Kante is back playing regularly for Chelsea and at 29, he is still important for France ahead of Euro 2021.

Riyad Mahrez

Riyad Mahrez would shock everyone when he stayed at Leicester the year they won the title, and despite signing a new four-year deal in 2016/17, the Algerian would move to Manchester City at the end of that season.

With another Premier League title won at City, Mahrez has scored 30 goals for the club and still struggles to get into the starting XI week in, week out at the Etihad, although he remains integral to Pep Guardiola's plans.

Andy King

Whilst players like Fuchs, Drinkwater and Simpson optimise the miraculous nature of the title win, nothing was more beautiful than seeing Andy King lift the title.

King joined Leicester in 2004 aged 16 and would become a regular for the club when he was 18, helping the Foxes out of League One and the Championship to eventually earn promotion to the Premier League in 2014.

Two years later, King played 25 times in the title win and the Leicester legend would stay for three more years, but make just one appearance in all competitions last season.

King is now in Belgium with Oud-Heverlee Leuven, who are challenging in the top four in the Belgian First Division A.

Demarai Gray

Demarai Gray might have been apart of the Leicester sqaud in 2015/16, but with just 12 appearances and no goals, the then-20-year-old was more or less seen as a star for the future and one to keep the title-winning momentum going.

Gray, however, has struggled to do so, despite being a regular for each season afterwards, and this campaign, the Englishman has made just one Premier League appearance and is wanted by clubs around Europe.

Bayer Leverkusen are one of the team seeking his signature and have reportedly put a bid in, and in truth, it doesn't seem he has much of a future at Leicester.

Jamie Vardy

The man.

Jamie Vardy is arguably the greatest player in Leicester's history and although he may not get to the numbers of Arthur Rowley or Arthur Chandler in the all-time scoring list, Vardy is perhaps the very, very best to don the blue shirt.

The Englishman scored 24 league goals that year in the Premier League, which funnily enough didn't bag him the Golden Boot. However, the top scorer award would come last year with 23 goals and Vardy has no doubt established himself as a Premier League great, delivering every single year since winning the league.

And, above all, he's still at the club and doesn't look like slowing down at 34.
