Leicester boss Rodgers advises Tielemans: You'll grow with us

Brendan Rodgers believes Youri Tielemans has been provided the perfect platform by Leicester City.

The Belgium international has excelled for the Foxes since joining on loan from Monaco in January.

And Rodgers remains hopeful over a permanent deal for the 21-year-old midfielder.

He said: "He came here in January because he wasn't getting game time.

"I think what Leicester have shown him is the opportunity that is here for any player, and in particular a young player.

"He is a very clever footballer with big experience for such a young player.

"He has got a wonderful platform and base here to continue that development if there is something that is agreed between the clubs."
