Leicester City chairman pledges to retain PRICELESS group of players

Don’t call them a one-hit wonder just yet, because the Leicester City ownership have no plans of breaking up the band just yet. On the heels of one of the most improbable title wins in the history of sports, the club have made it clear that they have no intentions of selling their most important contributors under any circumstances.

According to the Metro, Leicester City vice-chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha stated that the club will not sell PFA Team of the Year trio Jamie Vardy, N’Golo Kante or Riyad Mahrez, as well as star goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel as another player not being sold.

‘We are not the team that will sell players for money,’ the vice-chairman said. ‘So, I can confirm that we will keep all major players with the team, such as Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez, N’Golo Kante or Kasper Schmeichel’.

Mahrez was named PFA Player of the Year after scored 17 goals and recording 11 assists this season.

Vardy is the Premier League’s third-leading scorer as of writing and set the record for consecutive games with a goal earlier this year by scoring in 11 straight games.

Kante established himself as one of the best defensive midfielders in the league this season

Schmeichel has 15 clean sheets this season – tied with Joe Hart and Petr Cech for the most in the league.

Leicester City are expected to receive a £150 million financial windfall from their title win, and will play in the Champions League next season.
