Claude Puel is confident Harry Maguire will remain at Leicester

Leicester manager Claude Puel is confident defender Harry Maguire will remain at the club despite interest from Manchester United.

Sky Sports News reported last week United approached Leicester over the sale of their England centre-back Maguire.

It is understood they valued the player, who starred in England’s summer World Cup campaign, at around £65m but Puel is certain the 25-year-old will remain at the club.

“I am confident about the presence of Harry [Maguire] for this season. He is a very good player for us,” Puel told Sky Sports News.

“I was not surprised about his performance during this World Cup. We saw his progress during the second half of the season.

“He was great and played very well. It was not a surprise to see him perform well at this level in the international game.

“Of course for us he is a very good player – I wait for him with impatience because we need Harry and we need also Jamie [Vardy] because they are Leicester.”
