Soccer – Ranieri rules out duo departures


Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri is adamant neither Jamie Vardy nor Riyad Mahrez will leave the King Power Stadium in the January transfer window.

Two key features behind Leicester’s success so far this season have been the form of both Vardy and Mahrez, who have been catching the attentions of some of the bigger clubs in the Premier League.
However, Ranieri, whose side are 10/11 with Bet365 to beat Bournemouth on Saturday, is determined to keep his squad together and has no intention of cashing in on either of his two standout performers.
He said: “Nobody goes from Leicester.
“They have said they want to stay and fight until the end and build with me and the chairman and our fans a big Leicester.
“We are a solid team and we want to continue together with everybody.”
