On-loan Leicester City midfielder Youri Teilemans has revealed he is expecting to return to Monaco this summer, despite interest from a plethora of English clubs.

The 22-year-old joined the King Power Stadium back in January on a loan deal until the end of the season.

Tielemans instantly become a fan favourite at the club with a series of consistent displays, which has led to the Foxes showing a keen interest in making his move permanent.

The highly-rated youngster has been involved in Leicester’s last 13 games in all competitions, scoring in the wins over Fulham, Huddersfield and Arsenal.

However, as a result of Tielemans’ impressive performances, both Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are keeping a close eye on the midfielder ahead of a possible summer swoop.

Despite this, Tielemans, talking to VTM Nieuws, cited by the Manchester Evening News, admitted he is expecting to return to Monaco next season.

I expect that I will return to Monaco in the summer, unless something’s moving.

At the moment there’s nothing. If things are going well you want to keep it like that. I don’t know what Monaco will be asking, so I can’t talk about it.

Tielemans played a key role in Leicester’s final games which helped them to a 9th placed finish and could be a vital signing in helping Brendan Rodgers’ side kick on once again next season.
