Silva insists he is happy at loan club Monaco but said the decision on his future beyond the summer is in the hands of Leicester.
“I have never known a club with only one player per position. The competition is only positive for the team.
"I am on loan until the end of the season, I am happy to be here, I feel involved, I am an integral part of the squad If I can continue here I would be very happy.
“For this summer? That decision belongs to Leicester, my club, and Monaco. We cannot talk about that now, the season is not finished."
