Youri Tielemans says he is thankful for being handed the opportunity to play for Leicester but admits he isn’t sure what his future holds.

The Foxes signed Tielemans from Monaco on-loan in the final hours of transfer deadline day last month.

He will spend the rest of the season at the King Power Stadium and insists he is eager to learn as much as possible in a different county.

Tielemans, who won his debut against Tottenham on Sunday, caught the eye at the Wembley but was unable to prevent Leicester from losing 3-1.

Fans were impressed with his performance and are already calling for the Premier League side to push for a permanent deal.

The Belgium international insists the opportunity to join Leicester was too good to turn down but insists he isn’t thinking beyond his current loan spell.

Tielemans said: ‘Leicester were interested in me and I was interested in Leicester so they gave me the chance to learn something else in a different championship and in a different country.

I went into it and I am really happy about it.

‘We will see at the end of the season.

‘Today I am a Leicester City player but at the end season I will be back at Monaco so we will see what happens.’
