Leicester target Lindpere not about to leave New York

New York Red Bulls midfielder Joel Lindpere is being linked with English Championship club Leicester City.

The Estonian international enjoyed a great debut season with the Red Bulls, taking out their MVP in 2010, and his performances have not been lost on Foxes boss Sven-Goran Eriksson.

But Lindpere has made it clear that he wants to stick around at Red Bull Arena and help New York achieve some success.

"No, no, definitely not in the summer,'' Lindpere said of a potential transfer.

"If something big happens, then it can happen; but I don't think so.

"Of course I keep in touch with my agent. But the season is one and (we have) important games every week, so I don't see too many options that I can go from here, because I have a contract and Red Bull need me…I hope so."
