Youri Tielemans revealed he is keeping his options open for the future while negotiating a new deal at Leicester City. The Belgian has two years remaining on his contract at the King Power stadium. He has become an integral part of the Foxes midfield under Brendan Rodgers. Tielemans moved for a club-record £35m from Monaco two years ago. He has been attracted by the top clubs in Europe such as Real Madrid, Barcelona, Liverpool, and Manchester United.
“There’s no update really. I’m open to everything. The transfer market has just closed, but I want to keep as many options as I can open,” Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans said. “As long as I’m here I will give everything for the club. I’ve already done so, but I will do so even more. The contract situation is just something that is going on in football, it’s a normal situation. There are talks going on – I’m not saying I’m going to sign, I’m not saying I’m not going to sign. We will see.”
“I hope we can have him for longer. Jon (Rudkin, director of football) is meeting with his representatives.” Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers said. “He is a top-class professional, a great guy, and someone I love working with. He is very focused on his football and doesn’t get sidetracked at all. As I have said before, I will give him everything to help him continuously improve and he will continue to give us everything too. For me and Youri, it just continues – our relationship. Hopefully, we can resolve something in the future.”
