Although he does not regret remaining at Leicester City, Youri Tielemans is delighted for the rest the international break has given him from a difficult start to the season.

Only one point has been earned by Leicester so far in their seven Premier League games, they have dropped their last six games, and the midfielder is not happy about that.

Recall that Leicester City lost 5-2 to Brighton and Hove Albion before suffering a crushing defeat to Tottenham on Saturday, which put manager Brendan Rodgers under even more pressure.

Tielemans was hotly pursued by teams outside of Leicester during the recent transfer window, but the Foxes now risk losing their key player for free when his deal expires at the end of the season.

Despite the lack of a move, Tielemans does not regret remaining at the King Power Stadium. However, the midfielder, who scored the winning goal for Leicester against Chelsea in the 2020–21 FA Cup final, is happy to have joined Belgium and be out of the gloom.

Tielemans stated the following during a press conference prior to Belgium’s Nations League matches against Wales and the Netherlands:

I’m happy to get a bit of fresh air here [on international duty] because it’s tough at Leicester right now. It’s clear that things are not going well at the club. We are doing everything we can as a team. At Leicester, the consecutive defeats have affected us as a group. We need to benefit from this break to recharge our batteries. It’s hard to get it off my mind as it keeps running through my head. Only my kids sometimes prevent me from thinking about it.

If he doesn’t sign a new deal before January, Tielemans is likely to draw a lot of interest from the same clubs who were widely connected to him during the transfer window.

Tielemans believes that his contractual position and Leicester’s performance are entirely unrelated issues.

I’m not going to speak too much about my contract at the moment. I didn’t leave Leicester in the summer as I always said the project had to be the right one. Just because things are getting worse now at Leicester doesn’t mean I should regret [staying at the club].” – he said.
