Leicester boss Rodgers confirms plans to keep Lookman

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers admits he wants to keep hold of Ademola Lookman.

Lookman will cost Leicester £14million this summer if they decide to make his loan move from RB Leipzig permanent.

The winger, 24, has had a useful campaign at the King Power Stadium, scoring eight goals in 41 appearances in all competitions, and Rodgers has confirmed he would like to keep him.

"He is a young player I really like and he has done very well in his time here," said Rodgers, whose side take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Thursday.

"We will discuss that over the coming weeks and if it's possible I'd love to be able to do something because I think there is still growth in him.

"We just have to wait and see from a financial perspective if that's something we can do. He gives us real healthy competition and challenges [Harvey] Barnes in that left-sided position because that's where he's at his best. He is the type of player that of course I'd like to have."
