Man Utd, Liverpool target Tielemans doesn't regret staying at Leicester

Youri Tielemans insists he doesn’t regret staying at Leicester City despite enduring a tough period at the club.

The Foxes have just one point from their opening seven Premier League games.

Tielemans, who is now away with the Belgium national team, was linked with Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United in the summer.

“I’m happy to get a bit of fresh air here [with Belgium] because it’s tough at Leicester right now,” the midfielder said in a Belgium press conference. “It’s clear that things are not going well at the club. We are doing everything we can as a team.

“At Leicester, the consecutive defeats have affected us as a group. We need to benefit from this break to recharge our batteries. It’s hard to get it off my mind as it keeps running through my head. Only my kids sometimes prevent me from thinking about it.”

Tielemans has one year remaining on his contract but insists he doesn’t regret staying at the King Power for one more season.

“I’m not going to speak too much about my contract situation at the moment,” he added. “I didn’t leave Leicester in the summer as I always said the project had to be the right one.

“Just because things are getting worse now at Leicester doesn’t mean I should regret [staying].”
