Leicester City boss confident of keeping Chilwell despite missing out on CL

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is confident Ben Chilwell will be staying on at the club next season. The left-back has been subject of many transfer rumours in recent week with speculations linking him to both Chelsea and Manchester United. Rodgers insists that he is calm about the 23-year-old’s future with Leicester.

“It is something I am quite relaxed on,” he told reporters about Chilwell’s future. “I am fortunate we have a talented group of players which I am sure will interest some. All we can offer is a wonderful environment to come and play, develop, work in and improve as a player. We will see where it goes from there over the course of the off-season.”

Leicester City missed Champions League football for next season after dropping out of the top four of the Premier League just two games before the end of the season. On the final day of the season they needed a win over Manchester United, but were beaten 2-0 by the Mancunians. Leicester will now play in the Europa League next season.
