Though, when he returned, his name his constantly in the headlines.

That is because Manchester United were looking to sign the player.

“I think we will not have a problem this winter

Now, even if Man United move for the player in January, they are likely to be frustrated again.

That is because Leicester boss Claude Puel has warned them off a move for Maguire.

The Frenchman has claimed that Maguire decided to remain with the club until the summer and he expects no problems in January.

“We cannot have guarantees but I think Harry decided this summer to remain with us and play with us for another season,” he explained, as quoted by the Mirror. 

“He is happy with us and saw the quality of the team and its ambition.

“Harry is a valuable player for the club and it is important to keep our best players and maintain our ambition this season.

“I think we will not have a problem this winter because we have a good squad with good guys.”
