Young players can fulfil ambition at Leicester City, says Claude Puel

Leicester City manager Claude Puel believes his pool of talented young players can fulfil their ambitions at the Midlands club which wants to challenge the top six Premier League teams.

Manchester City are reported to be interested in Leicester's England centre back Harry Maguire, 24, while the club's Nigeria midfielder Wilfred Ndidi, 21, has been linked to Liverpool.

But Frenchman Puel is confident Leicester, who won the title in 2016, will do everything to give his young players a platform to develop and set higher targets for the near-future.

Leicester are eighth in the standings but without a win in their last four league matches, including a 1-1 draw at home to strugglers Swansea City and Stoke City.

Winger Marc Albrighton said Leicester were dominant in those two games and are determined to finish their chances at home against Bournemouth on Saturday.
