Spurs, Man Utd in contact but Tielemans keen on Leicester return

Youri Tielemans is keen to return to Leicester City.

Belgian football journalist Kristof Terreur says AS Monaco midfielder Tielemans is happy to remain at the King Power Stadium if Leicester want him.

“There have been talks, the agent's had talks with Spurs and Man United about him. Not sure he's the first choice at both clubs either," Terreur told the Transfer Talk podcast.

Monaco, they want to sell him and get rid of him. He's not in the plans of the manager. His good performances have done what they wanted, he's now worth more than he was worth in January when they rated him already at £40m.

“He's happy at Leicester, he enjoyed his time but it's now the question if Leicester are going to spend most of their transfer budget on one player.

“Maybe if they sell Maguire to Manchester City or something they will have more money but it's that question because Monaco will want a lot of money."
