​Leicester boss Puel assures fans defender Maguire not for sale

Leicester boss Claude Puel has stressed that in demand defender Harry Maguire is not for sale after reports Manchester United were interested in the centre back.

"Harry is a valuable player for us and I want to build my team around him," Puel said. "It's just speculation.

"He came into Leicester, played, developed and he needs to continue to improve. He's a young player with fantastic attributes, an international player, it's a good thing to have this player at Leicester.

"It's important to give him a good feeling for the future, to build a good team around him, to keep a good ambition for the future."

Asked if that means Leicester will not be selling Maguire, Puel responded: "Of course."
