LEICESTER CITY DEFENDER Christian Fuchs cannot understand speculation linking his team-mates with moves away from the club after their extraordinary Premier League triumph this season.

The success of Leicester has seen a number of players – particularly PFA player of the year Riyad Mahrez and midfielder N’Golo Kante – linked with moves to other clubs.

However, Fuchs says any of them would be crazy to leave, particularly with European football next season now on offer.

“We’re playing Champions League football next season. Leicester City are playing Champions League football, isn’t that a good enough reason to stay at this club?” he said.

I think all the lads know what this team is all about. So why not stay? I believe that.”

“It’s going to be amazing to play in it – I played in it for three years (with Schalke) and I’m happy to be back.”

Fuchs said he did not mind if the club decided to bring in new players, but insists whoever came in would have to fight for their spot in the first team.
