Transfer news: Claude Puel expects Harry Maguire to stay at Leicester beyond January amid Manchester United
The Foxes rejected a £60million bid from United for the England defender in August
Leicester City manager Claude Puel expects Harry Maguire to remain at Leicester beyond the January transfer window.
Foxes chiefs rejected Manchester United’s £60million bid for the England defender in August.
Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho is still desperate to strengthen his defence after conceding 25 league goals this season.
And Puel insists Maguire, 25, is “happy” at the King Power Stadium with Mourinho’s hunt for a centre-half set to resume next month.
The Frenchman said: “We cannot ever guarantee, but he decided this summer to remain with us, to play a full season.
“He is happy with us, he saw the quality of the team, the ambition, his fantastic team-mates, and of course for Harry or other valuable players of the club, it’s important to keep our best players until the end of the season and continue this work.
“In the past, Leicester took the right decisions. We saw this with Riyad Mahrez last season also.
“It was important to maintain the squad until the end of the season, and to keep all our players to play and perform.
