Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans says he ‘feels good’ at Leicester City and is in no rush to make a decision about his future amid interest from Manchester United.

“I try not to think about it much and focus on my own performance, it works well,” Tielemans told Het Belang van Limburg in his homeland.

“But it’s actually amazing how much they talk about my future. Every day they name a different club.’

“I have the feeling that people think that after this season I will be out of contract when I still have one year left. I feel good here, I like living here, my children go to school here. I’m happy both outside and inside football. And Leicester have ambition.

“I am very calm about [my future]. My contract expires in 2023 and it’s not that I absolutely want to leave. I haven’t made my decision yet. If I have to stay another year, I will gladly do so. The club has been really great towards me. They remain very professional, just like me. That will not change.

“There are talks between the club and my advisors. That will remain so. It’s not that I’m ignoring the club. I will study my options in the summer and make a decision. My family is the most important to me. I’m not going somewhere where I know my family isn’t happy. As a father of two children, you have to think about that too.”

Tielemans has scored 24 goals in 143 appearances for Leicester, including the winner in last season’s FA Cup final against Chelsea.
