Leicester defender Harry Maguire has been linked to Manchester United

Leicester City manager Claude Puel has warned Manchester United that a deadline day transfer for central defender Harry Maguire is impossible, and praised the England international's attitude amid the speculation over his future.

Maguire will be in the Leicester squad for tomorrow's Premier League opener at United and Puel joked: "I can confirm he is going..."

Asked about United's interest, Foxes boss Puel joked with the media at his pre-match press conference.

"I just think for his development another season at Leicester, honing his craft within the Premier League, which is a different stage, different animal to the World Cup, I think it would be best for him from a personal standpoint for him". "We have to prepare for this season with good possibilities", he added.

"The World Cup helped [He played in all three of Nigeria's games in Russian Federation, starting twice] - we didn't get to go through but it was a good experience and good fitness". "We are all happy that he has stayed".

'I am happy to keep Harry. "It would have been a good reward for our play". It was important for him to remain with us and keep strong momentum for this season.

"For us it is not possible". Our first-half was a good performance with good quality, good pressing, good play forward and a lot of chances. It is not serious'.

Ben Chilwell has insisted that Leicester City teammate Harry Maguire will not be leaving the King Power Stadium in the January transfer window.

Meanwhile Croat Benkovic, 21, arrives from Dinamo Zagreb for £13m.

That makes it seven summer signings at Leicester - following Ricardo Pereira, Jonny Evans, James Maddison, Danny Ward and Rachid Ghezzal.

It begs the question as to why Jose Mourinho wanted another and whether he would have offloaded two players had he signed Harry Maguire.
