Harry Maguire close to signing new £75,000 per week Leicester contract
Harry Maguire is close to agreeing an improved Leicester contract that will reflect his new status as a key England international.
It is understood Maguire will see his pay packet jump from £45,000 per week to £75,000 per week, positioning the 25-year-old amongst the club’s top earners.
United were prepared to spend £65million to sign Maguire but Leicester insisted he was not for sale and it is now envisaged there will be no problems in putting the finishing touches to his new King Power contract.
Meanwhile Stoke are interested in signing Danny Simpson. The Leicester right-back, an important member of the side’s Premier League title campaign, is available after Puel fielded Daniel Amartey and Ricardo Pereira at United.
