Leicester boss Rodgers: Tielemans quality always attracts interest

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is calm about transfer talk around Youri Tielemans.

Rodgers insists he is not concerned by reports that a number of clubs, including Arsenal, are keen on Tielemans.

The Leicester midfielder has just 18 months remaining on his contract, but Rodgers said: “Youri is very happy here. He’s clearly developed and has turned into one of the best midfield players in the Premier League.

“Clearly with a player of that quality, with the length he has on his contract, that’s always going to be of interest. But I can’t worry about that.

“I know he’s happy, I know he’s very concentrated and focused and we hope he will sign a new deal.

“If he doesn’t, I’ll continue to work with him. He continues to be super committed – brilliant professional and I’ve no concerns about Youri at all.”
