Leicester are still to make a second bid for Coventry youngster George Thomas.

Coventry City have still not received a second bid from Leicester City as the future of George Thomas remains undecided.

An initial bid for the 20-year-old - who is out of contract as of August 1 - was turned down by the Sky Blues in June and as yet no improved offer has been made.

It means a frustrating time for all involved, with manager Mark Robins keen for Thomas to stay, but even more keen for the situation to come to a resolution.

"The George Thomas situation will hopefully come to a conclusion because that's dragged on far too long for the boy, for us and everyone concerned," Robins told the Coventry Telegraph.

"They [Leicester] came in a while ago and it was turned down and we were just waiting for them to come back.

"For whatever reason it has taken six weeks but nothing has come back.

"He lives in Leicester – the team that are courting his services – and from my point of view it needs to get resolved now as quickly as possible because I just don’t think it’s right and I don’t think it’s fair how it drags on.

"We have made our thoughts clear, we think a lot about him and feel he’s a really good player and we just want the best for him. But it’s out of my control."

The Independent reported earlier in July that the Foxes were ready to make an improved £500,000 offer to win the race to Thomas' signature.

That was after their first offer of £300,000 was turned down and Swansea City pulled out of the chase as they did not want to sanction such a high fee for such an inexperienced player.

Brighton and Hove Albion and Newcastle United were also thought to be keeping tabs on the situation, but despite Leicester remaining favourites for the forward, it could still go to a tribunal to decide the fee Coventry will be owed.
