Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has claimed that they didn’t receive any bids for James Maddison amid Arsenal links.
Gunners are heavily linked with a move for the 24-year-old and have reportedly made a bid which eventually got rejected.
However, Rodgers says that club director Jon Rudkin tells him of any offers and the director of football is yet to bring any news on the Foxes’ number 10.
“He’s a busy young guy now, he’s become a father, so he’s changing nappies and everything else,” Rodgers said. “James doesn’t change. He’s a wonderful young guy to work with.
“It is what it is, it’s gossip and speculation, so you can’t get too emotional with all of that. He’ll understand it’s the nature of this time of the season, with lots of stories going around. I know he’s very happy here and wants to be here.
“I haven’t spoken to him on it. I don’t need to speak around gossip and speculation. If anything ever comes to the club, Jon Rudkin will tell me straight away and I will deal with it then.
“There’s been nothing that’s come my way. As far as I’m concerned, we haven’t had anything for James. He’s a very talented player but also in the bigger picture, you’ve seen it, all clubs lose players but for us it’s not something we worry about.
“We’re a club that develops players and develops staff. Whenever those players and people develop, they’re always held in high regard.”
