But he has come out to say he had no thoughts of leaving Leicester following the reports, having moved to Leicester from Scottish champions Celtic in February in dramatic fashion.

“There is nothing to talk about on it. The game is full of gossip and speculation.”

“The only thing I will say is I was very happy here at Leicester, I’ve literally just joined the club in February.

“Everything has been great since we’ve been in. We have a project here that we want to develop over the next number of years.”

Rodger since joining the foxes has affected an attacking style of play with players like Jamie Vardy and James Maddison benefiting.

In his news conference on Thursday he said Maddison will be fit to play Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday after recovering from a minor calf injury.

The midfielder is Leicester’s go to man from a creative angle scoring four times already this season and creating two.

“James is fine. He has trained the last few days and he is OK,” said the Leicester boss.

“We’re all very happy for James (to make his England debut). He’s shown he’s a big-game player, with his goals scored against Arsenal, Liverpool, Spurs.”

Leicester City are currently second on the Premier League table eight points behind Liverpool and level with Chelsea in third.
