Sun 28 February 2021 | 12:24

Harvey Barnes is having a discussion with Leicester City about signing a new deal.

The England international

Harvey Barnes

is running on the right track this season, having met the target nine times and contributed four assists in 24 games in the

Premier League

.

The winger had his debut in England in 2020 and may be in Gareth Southgate’s squad as they are getting ready for the European Championship.

Liverpool

and

Manchester United

are interested in acquiring the 23-year-old’s services. However, they have been let down as Barnes is on the verge of signing a renewal with

Leicester

.  

His contract is due to expire in 2024, but the Foxes aim to make his contract longer as he pulled off a significant performance this season, helping his side sit third in the Premier League table. Brendon Rodger’s side is deciding to offer him a higher wage. Another player who is about to sign a renewal is

Youri Tielemans

.

When the Belgium international was quizzed whether he is keen on extending his contract, Tielemans said: “

Why not?

“This is a club where you have the best environment you can have, especially with the new training ground. 

"The people around you just want the best from you. It's brilliant to be here and I really like it here. 

“You can't predict the future or whether we are ready to win trophies but everything around the club and inside the club is already in place to produce success.”
