EPL: Fofana is going nowhere, says Leicester City boss Rodgers

Leicester City defender Wesley Fofana on Chelsea radar

Leicester boss, Brendan Rodgers, has said there have been no new bids for defender Wesley Fofana.

Chelsea are interested in signing the 21-year-old France U21 international and have had two bids rejected.

Rodgers said last week he did not want to sell the centre-back.

Asked whether any new bids had been submitted, Rodgers said: “Not that I am aware of. There were two, but again, nowhere near what the club would even think about.”

Fofana signed a new deal at the Foxes in March that contracts him to the club until 2027.

Rodgers added: “The point to reiterate is that we are not looking to sell Wesley. He is not a player we are actively looking to sell but naturally if there is interest from other clubs that is looked at by the club.

“He is a top young defender. There are not too many about at his age. He is someone we would love to keep here but we will have to see what develops.”

Fofana joined Leicester from Saint-Etienne in 2020 and made 38 appearances in his first year at the club.

Last season he did not play until March after breaking his leg in a pre-season friendly against Villarreal in August.

However, he started the Foxes’ first game of the current campaign as they drew 2-2 with Brentford.
