This summer Leicester City has faced continued raids from fellow Premier League sides trying to poach their top talent and Danny Drinkwater is the latest to be tempted.
Danny Drinkwater emerged as one half of a formidable midfield partnership for the Foxes alongside N’Golo Kante.
The later having been the one main star to decide that a move was the right option, in stark contrast Drinkwater stated that his future is at Leicester according to his comments in the Evening Standard:
"“N’Golo Kante was a big loss but we’ve brought in Mendy [Nampalys Mendy] and Kingy’s [Andy King] come in and stepped in at the last minute. We’ll work it out ourselves.It’s great for us that Riyad Mahrez is staying, he’s a big player. Him, Vards [Jamie Vardy] and all of the boys putting pen to paper is good for the team.”"
It is without a doubt that the ability of Leicester to re-sign and extend the contracts of their top performers last season is having a lot to do with Drinkwater claiming he will stay.
Wes Morgan, Kasper Schmeichel, Andy King, Jamie Vardy, Ben Chilwell and Riyad Mahrez are the prime examples of the stars that are staying on.

Drinkwater is yet to sign his new deal, but claims as soon as the offer is right he will put pen to paper and that he is currently just focusing on his football on the pitch:
"“I’m leaving the contract to them, I’m not getting involved and just trying to concentrate on my football and what happens out on the pitch.I want something done. When it’s right it’s right and I’ll sign. I love the club."
Currently Tottenham are being linked with a heavy pursuit of the 26-year-old England International, but after a strong return to form for the side against Arsenal this weekend, it could be harder to convince Drinkwater to consider making a move.
