Youri Tielemans & Leicester
Youri Tielemans joined Leicester City on a six month loan contract from Monaco in January.
Adrien Silva left the King Power Stadium in a swap deal.
The 21-year-old Belgian international is under contract at Monaco until 2022.
So far Tielemans has impressed with the Foxes.
In six matches he’s contributed two assists and one goal in the Premier League.
Tielemans drops hint over Leicester future
The midfielder is now with the Belgium national team for the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers.
Tielemans spoke to the press on Monday, and he was asked about what’s happening at Monaco and will he remain at Leicester. He said:
Personally, I don’t feel like a different player since my loan to Leicester.
At Monaco the results were not good and there was a lot of negativity. I experienced two managerial changes and then it is difficult to perform.
The return of Leonardo Jardim in January was somewhat bizarre. I was surprised. It doesn’t happen often that a trainer returns so quickly.
I only worked with Jardim for 2 or 3 days. I don’t know if I would have stayed if he hadn’t returned.
A loan was just the best choice, I think.
I don’t see my time in Monaco as a failure at all. It just didn’t work out this season.
I have become a much better player there.
I also think it’s just good to return next summer. I am open to a lot. Also for an extended stay in Leicester, though.
We’ll see what happens. I wait and do my best on the field. After that we will see what is coming.
