Youri Tielemans has admitted to ‘keeping his options open’ amid ongoing speculation over his future at Leicester City.

Tielemans is heading into the final two years of his contract and the Foxes are eager to tie him down after he scored the winner in their FA Cup triumph over Chelsea in May.

The 24-year-old has insisted he will ‘give everything’ to Leicester while talks continue as Brendan Rodgers’ side prepare to take on Napoli in the Europa League on Thursday.

‘There’s no update really. I’m open to everything. The transfer market has just closed, but I want to keep as many options as I can open,’ he told Sky Sports.

‘As long as I’m here I will give everything for the club. I’ve already done so, but I will do so even more. The contract situation is just something that is going on in football, it’s a normal situation. 

‘There are talks going on – I’m not saying I’m going to sign, I’m not saying I’m not going to sign. We will see.’ 

Sportsmail previously revealed how Leicester were looking to offer Tielemans a new £100,000-a-week contract to stay at the club.

However, Tielemans – who joined The Foxes in 2019 for a club-record £35m – has picked up interest from Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United and could be set for an exit as a result. 

Tielemans would be a huge loss for Brendan Rodgers considering he has scored 18 goals and registered 19 assists in 113 appearances in all competitions. 

Speaking before Deadline day, Rodgers referred to Tielemans as a ‘top-class professional’ and admitted he would like the 24-year-old to commit his future to the club.

He said: ‘I hope we can have him for longer. Jon (Rudkin, director of football) is meeting with his representatives.

‘He is a top-class professional, a great guy and someone I love working with. He is very focused on his football and doesn’t get sidetracked at all. As I have said before, I will give him everything to help him continuously improve and he will continue to give us everything too.

‘For me and Youri, it just continues – our relationship. Hopefully, we can resolve something in the future.’
