Outlook is bright for Leicester City star Anthony Knockaert
Anthony Knockaert is loving everything about his new life at Leicester City, except the weather.
The 21-year-old, who hails from Roubaix in northern France, says he feels thoroughly at home at City, and that the only thing that could possibly make him happier, besides warmer weather, is promotion to the Premier League.
The winger has been an instant hit with the Blue Army and the appreciation is reciprocated, but he said failure to clinch promotion this season would sour what has been a great first season for him.
"I am very happy to play for Leicester because there is a very big fan base and we have a very good group of players," he said.

"The town is good but the weather isn't, but you can't have everything. I am very happy. The club is fantastic to me.
"I am enjoying my football and I think the group are enjoying it too.
"But I will enjoy it even more when we get into the Premier League because, for me and for the group, the most important thing is promotion.
"We have some good quality with Chris Wood, Harry Kane and David Nugent, but every player in the squad has good quality.
"We need everyone for the rest of the season because everyone's talent is needed to gain promotion.
"If we don't go up, I will not be happy because we have had a very good season. But, hopefully, we will do it."
Knockaert, whose English is improving all the time, said it was vital City maintained the same level of performance at Ipswich today that they produced in the 3-0 victory against Blackburn on Tuesday night.
"It is important to be consistent now," he said. "We need three points every game now if we want to go to the Premier League."
