Iheanacho vows to lift Leicester City starting against Manchester United

Maguire starred against Manchester United in the Premier League season opener

The boss reserved praise for Harry Maguire who was subject to interest from United in the transfer window.

It remains to be seen whether Manchester United receive encouragement from Leicester's movement in the transfer market and go big for Maguire in the next 24 hours.

Leicester paid £12 million rising to £17 million in June previous year for Maguire, with United opting to pass on the opportunity to bring the player to Old Trafford. We saw that again tonight, how good a player he is. He is our best player.

Leicester have already lost influential winger Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City in the current transfer window, and Puel wants to keep the rest of his core group of players at the club. They are a good team, a solid team, an experienced team.

It has been reported that it would take a world-record bid for a defender, exceeding the £75million Liverpool paid Southampton for Virgil van Dijk, to even tempt Leicester to sell Maguire.

"Harry, he's happy also to remain with us". He came back with a good spirit and attitude.

"For us it is not possible".

"It's a good feeling, it was the first time last season I came to a club in the middle of the season without preparation or pre-season friendly games to prepare something", he added. "It is not serious".

He made a good performance (against Lille), but the most important thing is to present against Manchester United, " Puel was quoted as saying by Leicester Mercury.

Meanwhile, Leicester have agreed a deal to sign Dinamo Zagreb defender Filip Benkovic.

One of the Three Lions' standout performers at the World Cup, the 25-year-old was strongly linked with a move away from the King Power Stadium just a year after arriving from Hull.

"To concede the goal after the first seconds of the game, we need to correct this and not concede early".
