​Puel: Leicester determined to keep Man Utd target Maguire

Leicester City boss Claude Puel says it is important they keep Harry Maguire amid Manchester United's interest in the defender, reports Sky Sports.

"For me it's good for Leicester to keep a valuable player, and it's important to show good ambition for the next season," Puel explained.

"I can understand some speculation about our player because he has good attributes, but I am happy to keep him and hopefully start a great season.

"We lost Riyad Mahrez, who was a very good player for us. After Riyad it was important to keep our players and add some good players to strengthen the team."
