Jose Mourinho has signed three players so far this summer but a new centre-back is understood to be on the agenda as he looks to build a squad capable of competing with Manchester City next season.

The reward of a starting berth in the three-man England defence comes after being an ever-present for the Foxes during their Premier League campaign, playing every minute of the season as Claude Puel's side finished ninth.

City had enquired about the 2016 PFA player of year in the closing days of the transfer window but refused to meet Leicester's asking price. "Winning the premiership against all odds was just something else and none of this would have been possible without your extraordinary support for me and the team". "Players at top clubs always have to face competition for places, it is normal for big clubs to have a lot of great players and City are a big club with a big manager", he explained.

"It's a club who wants to win this type of trophy".

"The whole of Algeria is very excited at his move and you will see Algerian flags at the Etihad Stadium next season, without a doubt with many people in his country supporting him".

Stanton replied: "It is absolutely worth continuing with the development of this system in as timely a manner as feasible". He hit back at his critics this week, saying the dive team had instructed him to keep working on the submarine.

Liverpool are second favourites to sign Maguire this summer at 9/2, while Chelsea and Manchester City can both be backed at 10/1. This is the past and we are looking forward now.

After their title success, City are now striving to win the Champions League and that ambition was of huge appeal to Mahrez. "It's a good thing". They're redefining the English game and I wanted to be a part of it.

"After what they've done it's fantastic", Mahrez, 27, told a news conference. I didn't hesitate at all. They broke all the Premier League records which is unbelievable, but no I never thought about this.

"I am confident I can help the team and make an impact", he said.
