Youri Tielemans: Leicester City midfielder ‘keeping options open’ regarding future

Youri Tielemans says he is “keeping his options open” as he continues to negotiate the terms of a new contract with Leicester City.

The 24-year-old is into the last two years of his contract at the King Power Stadium and Leicester are keen to tie him down to a new deal.

Barcelona, Liverpool, Manchester United, and Real Madrid are among the European clubs that are reportedly interested in the Belgium international.

Despite becoming an integral member of Brendan Rodgers’ team which has regularly challenged the Premier League’s top clubs in recent seasons, Tielemans, who moved in a club-record £35m deal from Monaco in 2019, was reticent when asked whether he envisages his long-term future with the Foxes.

“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,” he 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.”
