Leicester boss Rodgers warns Arsenal, Barcelona over Tielemans signing plans


Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers insists they won't be selling Youri Tielemans in January.

Arsenal and Barcelona are among the European giants targeting the Belgium midfielder, who is off contract in June

But Rodgers warned: "It's not something we are thinking of [selling Tielemans] and not anything the club have said we need to do.

“We don't want to be offloading our best players, that's for sure.

“So there has been no hint or indication we need to generate money and move him on. But, of course, there's a business side to the club that they will look at."

On whether Tielemans is impacted by the speculation over his future, Rodgers added: “He doesn't let that affect him. He is a top-class professional. He sees the game how I see it. On the field he understands what is happening within the game and that's all he can do, give his very best. His recent performances have been excellent."
