The club held firm in their desire to keep Maguire this summer despite strong interest from Manchester United, who valued the defender at about £65 million but did not make a formal bid after Leicester made it clear it would take substantially more to prise him away.

The 25-year-old enjoyed a decent debut season at the King Power, before going on to enjoy an impressive World Cup campaign in Russian Federation, during which he assisted Harry Kane's goal in England's opening game with Tunisia, then scored his country's opener in the quarter-final victory over Sweden.

Maguire was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United during the closing weeks of the transfer window but the Red Devils were unable to strike a deal to land the central defender.

However, the Foxes gaffer has seemingly been given a vote of confidence from the club as his prized centre-back, Harry Maguire, is on the cusp of signing a new contract with Leicester, a year after arriving at the club.

Maguire played the full 90 minutes of Leicester's 2-1 defeat at United on Friday night, only four days after returning from holiday after the World Cup.

Maguire earned rave reviews for his solid performances for England as he helped the Three Lions to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.

'Soyuncu, it is official, ' Puel said.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are now preparing for their Premier League clash against Brighton on Sunday afternoon.
