Sutton convinced Arsenal target Tielemans will leave Leicester

Former England striker Chris Sutton believes Youri Tielemans will leave Leicester City.

Sutton believes the long-running saga linking the Belgian midfielder to the Emirates has put Leicester in an awkward position.

Tielemans has one year left on his deal and Sutton does not see him signing an extension.

He told BBC Radio 5Live: "He has had his head turned. He won't be at Leicester [next season]. That's the big rumour, isn't it? [Tielemans to Arsenal].

"The fact of the matter is that if he wanted to stay at Leicester [then he would have signed a new contract]."
