Caglar Soyuncu has ruled out a move away from Leicester City during the upcoming summer transfer window.

The Turkish defender arrived at the King Power Stadium in the summer of 2018 and emerged as Harry Maguire’s replacement after he completed a £80million move to Manchester United last year.

Soyuncu had enjoyed a superb spell for Leicester before the 2019-20 season was suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak, with Brendan Rodgers’ side third in the Premier League.

Manchester City expressed interest in signing the 23-year-old in January, while Arsenal have been persistently linked with a move for Soyuncu.

But the Turkey international told Fotomac: ‘I don’t think it would be right to go somewhere right now.

‘I’m having a good season. Above all, I still have a lot to learn.

‘He [Maguire] is the most expensive defender in the world and your team does not buy another because it trusts you.

‘You play instead of someone who transferred for 80 million pounds. We’re going well now, but the important thing is to keep it going.

‘I played 30 matches, but it’s important to increase this to three-digit numbers. It is very important to be at the same level throughout your career.’

Soyuncu has made 43 appearances for Leicester City since arriving in the Premier League from Freiburg.
