Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has suggested that it may be too soon to consider making a permanent move for Monaco loanee Youri Tielemans.
Tielemans joined the Foxes on a short-term loan deal during the January transfer window and has thoroughly impressed so far, registering a goal and two assists in his first five Premier League appearances. As it stands, the 21-year-old is set to return to his parent club at the end of the season as Leicester have no option-to-buy in their current loan agreement.
Reports have suggested that Leicester may have to fork out around £40m to land Tielemans on a permanent basis and, when asked if it would indeed take a huge fee, Rodgers responded, as per the Leicester Mercury:
“I think as he gets fitter between now and the end of the season you'll hopefully see more from him as well.
"He's a big talent and only 21. He hasn't played a lot of football which is why towards the end of the game sometimes his legs go a wee bit heavy, but he's a good boy and it's working well for him here."
