​Leicester fear late bids for Mahrez and Drinkwater

Leicester City boss Craig Shakespeare concedes that the Foxes fear losing star duo Riyad Mahrez and Danny Drinkwater late in the window.

Both players have been linked with exits from Leicester this summer; however, the Foxes are yet to receive an acceptable offer for either of them.

Shakespeare said: "Because the date is set in stone, you have no choice but to go that date. You have to get used to that. There's nothing we can do about it.

"I've said that your worst fear is that an acceptable bid comes in, but if it does, we have to deal with it then.

"Until it does, we have no decision to make. We have to be aware of every scenario. We know the reality of how the window transpires.

"I've read the speculation but until we get the bids accepted, there's no difference for me.

"We carry on with them. All the time we're talking about the speculation. We'll carry on as normal until I'm told otherwise."
