No Leicester City Player Will Be Leaving This January - Brendan Rodgers

Brendan Rodgers killed speculations over any Leicester City players leaving midway through the season.

The Foxes are second in the Premier League table and many of their players are being eyed by rival teams. They sold Harry Maguire to Manchester United for £85m and replaced him with Caglar Soyuncu.

Now, the 21-year-old Turkish man is being targetted by a host of European outfits. James Maddison is wanted by Manchester United while Ben Chilwell is on Chelsea and Manchester City’s shortlist. Barcelona are thought to be interested in star right-back, Ricardo Pereira as they look to cut Nelson Semedo loose. However, Rodgers was having none of it as the Scottish coach shut down all rumours.

“Nobody will leave here that we don’t want to go,” Rodgers told reporters on Friday. “I think we’ve had a couple of enquiries in terms of loans and for some of our younger players. But the players that are always talked about and mentioned, there will be nobody going.”

“We know if we’re going to be playing European football next season then we’re going to need the depth, but January is a very difficult month,” he added. “I think we’ll see if we can improve the squad and if we don’t then we’ll have to wait until the summer but as I’ve said before we’re in a really good place and we don’t want to stockpile. They have to be players that are going to improve the squad.”
