Leicester City to open contract talks with injured Ghana defender Daniel Amartey
Leicester City manager Claude Puel has disclosed their desire to open talks with Daniel Amartey's representatives over a new contract.
The former FC Copenhagen defender has become a mainstay under French gaffer Claude Puel after initially struggling to command a starting berth.
The 23-year-old is under contract at the King Power Stadium until 2020 but the Foxes are eager to secure his services with a new long-term deal.
Claude Puel also confirmed that a number of players who will become free agents in 2019 are currently in talks with the club's director of football, Jon Rudkin.
"There are some discussions with Jon [Rudkin] about all the players in our squad,” Puel said, quoted by Leicestershire Live.
"I don’t want to give it away for them or for other players. I can say about them, about the squad, I’m happy to have all these players with us. We have to manage them and try to give them the game-time to continue with a positive attitude.
Amartey is currently undergoing rehabilitation to correct an ankle injury he suffered against West Ham last month.
