Leicester City forward dismisses exit talk

Leicester City striker Leonardo Ulloa has insisted he isn’t looking to leave the Premier League champions, despite being linked with a move to Swansea City.

The Express are reporting that the title winning forward wants to stay with the Foxes, even if he does have to sit on the bench at times.

The Argentine only started 7 league games last season, as Shinji Okazaki’s form lead to the Japanese forward starting alongside star striker Jamie Vardy.

And after the club spent £16million to sign Ahmed Musa, Ulloa’s chances of playing have been dealt a heavy blow. But whilst Ulloa is aware of this, he says he still wants to be a Leicester City player:

“Yes, I am happy because the group is very good,” he said. “The team also, and the club is getting stronger. I am very happy here.

“I like to play every game if I can, from the start, but if I can’t start then I want to make a contribution, I want to help the team”

After winning the title, the Foxes will be playing UEFA Champions League football next season. They will be in Pot 1 for the group stage draw, along with giants Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, PSG and Juventus. The draw will be made on August 25th.
