Youri Tielemans was a brilliant servant to Leicester in the short amount of time he was at the club. The Belgian midfielder arrived on loan from Monaco in January and was an instant success.
However, he’s now due to return to the Ligue 1 side with his future very much up in the air.
And with that in mind, Tielemans has hinted that the quality of life in England is much better than in Monaco, comparing it to his native country. That was in quotes from TV channel VTM Nieuws, relaid by Leicestershire Live.
Having read the article, Foxes fans were quick to have their say on the 22-year-old, but much of the fan base were split, providing both positive and negative thoughts.
One supporter said the club must buy him at all costs whilst another claimed a permanent move would help Leicester break into the top six.
However, a further fan felt as though they’d miss out on the Belgian, suggesting it would be typical Leicester. One tweeter also said they weren’t convinced that there aren’t similar players out there.
The 5 ft 9 midfielder played in 13 Premier League games after joining, scoring three times and claiming four assists, per WhoScored.
Here’s the best of the reaction.
Serious feeling we are going to miss out here. In typical Leicester fashion.

Sadly, I think it will just be a memory.
No doubt ASMonaco will want top dollar, and as a result I can see him ending up at a Fat ?. Abroad would be ok, just not here. ??

He’s a talent, but I am not convinced that there isn’t similar out there. He came in at a time we needed something different in the middle. He’s adapted well, but who’s to say we’re not re-evaluating our options?

Really hope we make it work. He is absolute class act and will help us break that top 6
