- That’s despite interest from Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham
- However, Tielemans could return to a second-tier club if Monaco are relegated
Youri Tielemans expects to return to Monaco following the end of his Leicester City loan despite interest from Tottenham, Manchester United and Arsenal.
The Belgium international, 22, has impressed since arriving in the Premier League during the January transfer window.
Tielemans has scored three times and contributed five assists in 12 Premier League outings for the Foxes and has attracted interest from some of the division’s elite.

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers is also keen to sign Tielemans on a permanent basis ahead of next season.
But the Belgian expects to return to Monaco once the Premier League season concludes on Sunday.
He could easily be returning to a second-tier side, with Monaco only out of the Ligue 1 relegation zone on goal difference with two rounds of fixtures to go.

‘I expect that I will return to Monaco in the summer, unless something’s moving,’ Tielemans told VTM Nieuws.
‘At the moment there’s nothing. If things are going well you want to keep it like that. I don’t know what Monaco will be asking, so I can’t talk about it.’
Leicester, who finish their Premier League campaign with a home fixture against Chelsea, have nothing like Monaco’s problems and can finish as high as eighth.
