Leicester want Youri Tielemans to commit future to the club by signing new contract after Belgium midfielder caught the interest Europe's top clubs including Liverpool last season

Leicester will step up their efforts to tie Youri Tielemans to a new deal when the player returns from holiday later this month.

The Belgium midfielder scored the only goal in the FA Cup final against Chelsea in May and produced a series of outstanding displays last term that caught the eye of Europe’s leading clubs.

As reported by Sportsmail on May 17, one of the Foxes’ top priorities this summer has been to secure the future of Tielemans, who has only two years left on his contract.

A fresh contract would move Tielemans closer to top earners Jamie Vardy and Kasper Schmeichel, who each collect more than £100,000 a week.
