Leicester City are set to open negotiations with Daniel Amartey’s representatives in a bid to renew his contract, according to manager Claude Puel.
The 23 year old is under contract at the King Power Stadium until 2020 but the former Premier League Champions are keen to fend off interests.
The foxes have been impressed with the Ghanaian’s form which saw him feature prominently before his unfortunate injury.
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.
The crocked Black Stars defender is currently undergoing rehabilitation to correct an ankle injury he suffered against West Ham last month.
