Monaco accept they must sell Youri Tielemans to Leicester

AS Monaco have accepted they must sell Youri Tielemans to Leicester City.

After his six-month loan, Tielemans is on the brink of returning to the Foxes in a permanent switch.

Le 10 Sport says Leicester have triggered the €45m option in their deal and despite rival interest, Tielemans is eager to make the move.

The Belgian enjoyed his spell in England and is eager to work with manager Brendan Rodgers long-term.

For the moment, the only thing holding up the deal is Adrien Silva's situation and whether he will remain with ASM after his respective loan last season.
