Cape Town - Leicester City boss Claude Puel has ruled out the summer sale of England defender Harry Maguire.

After moving to Leicester from relegated Hull City last summer, Maguire has earned a place in the England squad and been linked with several of the Premier League’s top six, including Manchester United, Manchester City and Spurs.

But after Leicester splashed out £17 million on Maguire 12 months ago, Puel insists the club are not looking to make a quick profit and will "build ta team" around the 25-year-old.

"He is a valuable player for us. It is just speculation," said Puel.

"He came into Leicester and played and developed and he needs to continue to improve.

"He's a young player with fantastic attributes, an international player, and it is a good thing to have this player at Leicester.

"He is an important player for us and it is important to give him a good feeling for the future, to build a good team around him and to keep a good ambition for the future."
