Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that the club will do everything possible to keep midfielder Youri Tielemans at the club beyond this season.

Rodgers was speaking with reporters after Tielemans started for the Foxes against Arsenal in their Premier League clash on Sunday afternoon.

Belgian international star Youri Tielemans scored his third goals for Leicester City since joining them in the January transfer window.

He scored the opening goal for Leicester City in the 3-0 thumping handed out to 10-man Arsenal with all the goals coming in the second half.

Arsenal had a man sent off in the first half of that encounter after midfielder turned right-back Ainsley Maitland-Niles was sent off.

Former Arsenal target Jamie Vardy also scored two goals against the Gunners to dent their top-four hopes.

Only a top-four finish will guarantee Champions League football for next season via the league route.

Youri Tielemans has been a key player for the Foxes since joining on loan from French Ligue 1 giants AS Monaco earlier this year.

He was linked with a loan move to North Londoners Arsenal before the Foxes signed him.

Leicester City will have to pay at least £40m to make his loan move permanent this summer amidst the interest from other Premier League clubs.
