“The thought is that he could be very a lot a Leicester participant. He isn’t on the market. Except something adjustments, I’d anticipate him to be right here.
“There’s nothing new from once we final spoke. We have spoken quite a few instances they’re personal conversations. Our communication is regular.”
On how the scenario is affecting his early-season preparations, Rodgers added: “There isn’t any denying it. It is at all times a difficult interval. Your season is beginning, you are making an attempt to get centered, and also you spend your summer time creating this highly effective collective unit, after which there’s a number of hypothesis.
