Tottenham Hotspur missed out on a late transfer window move to sign Youri Tielemans from Monaco.

Tielemans signed with Leicester City on loan. The Telegraph had reported a day earlier that Spurs were interested.

 

Tielemans has had an impressive start for the Foxes so far, making his debut against Spurs.

He has two assists and one goal to his name so far in six matches.

His form has ensured a call up to Belgium's international squad. Tielemans was asked about Leicester yesterday and refused to commit.

He told Nieuwsblad: "I remain a Monaco player. I am definitely not going to say anything else (smile). I'll be back this summer and we'll see.

"I am open to everything. For Monaco, but also for Leicester or another team."

Tielemans is relinquishing control over his future.

It is up to whoever pays Monaco's asking price in the summer.

Tielemans could make it difficult for the Ligue 1 side by insisting he is keen to join Leicester no matter what.

He chose not to do so, and Tottenham will have a second chance to snap him up this summer, providing they stump up the cash.
