Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers insists he is relaxed about Youri Tielemans’ future despite contract talks dragging on.

The midfielder revealed this week that he was keeping his options open amid interest from Manchester United.

His Leicester City contract expires in the summer of 2023 and Rodgers is keen on keeping the Belgium international.

Rodgers said: “There’s no drama with it. It’s just the reality of the situation. It only becomes a problem to me if there’s a lack of commitment or there’s not the same intensity but that’s never been the case with Youri.

“It’s natural, he is a very talented player who is in discussions with the club and we’ll see where that takes us.

“I have no idea (why it is dragging on), I concentrate on the football and making sure he is the best player he can be, giving him the support, environment and culture to be that.

“He is a top-class professional and a joy to work with and while he is here – for however long that is – he will always give and I will always give the best to his development.”
