Brendan Rodgers provides a transfer update on James Maddison amid Manchester United links

With Manchester United linked to James Maddison in the January transfer window, Brendan Rodgers has insisted Leicester City have no plans to sell any of their players.

Leicester have had a blistering start to the Premier League and sit second after 12 games meaning that it will be tough for them to let any of their star players leave in January.

Maddison has been at the center Foxes' success as he has directly contributed to six goals in 11 top-flight appearances.

Speaking ahead of their clash against Brighton and Hove Albion, Rodgers revealed he has no plans to sell any of his players, "We want to grow, and there’s a lot of development left in this squad. We’ve absolutely no plans to lose anyone in January.

"Our job is to keep what we have and if there’s an opportunity to improve the squad we will look to do that. If not, we will carry on with the squad we have, which is very strong."

On Maddison's form this season and his chances at international level, Rodgers added: "If you look at his numbers this season, in terms of the goals he has scored and created, he has shown he is a big-game player.

"He has scored goals against Liverpool, against Tottenham, against Arsenal. James is among a lot of very good players with England and it’s just about preference, whether Gareth [Southgate] and his staff want to pick him.

"You can see he is at the level. If not, he will continue to work. He doesn’t expect to play, he’s not entitled, but he loves playing and will hopefully get many more caps for his country."
