Tottenham Hotspur were heavily linked with a January move for Monaco midfielder Youri Tielemans only for a move to fail to materialise with the player instead joining Leicester City on loan until the end of the season (Telegraph).
The Belgian has impressed during his stint at the Foxes with manager Brendan Rodgers already publically stating his desire to make the 22-year-old’s move a permanent one (Leicester Mercury).
Tielemans has scored three goals and provided four assists in his limited time at Leicester which has prompted their fans to frequently sing ‘sign him up’ during matches.
The player has now admitted that his future looks uncertain and does not know if Monaco will raise their valuation of him now that they know that he can cut it in the Premier League.
He was loaned out while Thierry Henry was in charge at Monaco, but the Frenchman has since been sacked and replaced with former boss Leonardo Jardim who could potentially look to give him another chance.
Tielemans told Belgian publication VTMNieuws: “I expect that I will return to Monaco in the summer, unless something’s moving.
“At the moment there’s nothing. If things are going well you want to keep it like that. I don’t know what Monaco will be asking, so I can’t talk about it.”
He signed for Monaco in a £21m deal from Anderlecht in 2017 and made 35 appearances for the Ligue 1 club in his first season (Sky Sports).
