Leicester are currently fourth in the Premier League, ahead of Manchester United on goal difference, as they prepare for Sunday's trip to Tottenham.

Asked about his players being linked with other clubs, Rodgers said: "I'm quite relaxed on it. I'm not worried at all. We've got a fantastic squad, a squad we want to keep together.

"There's no intention to sell Ben Chilwell and there's absolutely no need to sell.

"So the message is he's not for sale - it's as simple as that."
