He joined Leicester from Monaco on an initial loan deal in January 2019 before signing on a permanent deal for £32 million in July 2019.

He made 195 appearances and won the FA Cup during his four-and-a-half-year spell at the King Power Stadium.

In his farewell message to fans of Leicester City, Tielemans wrote;

Tielemans announces he's leaving Leicester City after they got relegated

“Dear Leicester City fans, after 4.5 special years and with a lot of gratitude I’m bidding farewell to this incredible club.

“From the first day I set foot on this ground, your warmth and passion embraced me.

“Victory and triumph, love, hope and even defeat. We’ve shared many special moments together. I am forever grateful for your unwavering support.

“Thank you to Khun Top, the board, the staff, the players and fans for having given me and my family a home. This is not a goodbye, but a heartfelt farewell.”

It has been a miserable season for Leicester City, with Dean Smith, hired after Brendan Rodgers was sacked. He however failed to inspire a significant turnaround in form which would have helped them avoid being relegated.

While Tielemans’ exit is the only one that has been confirmed, he is not the only Foxes midfielder expected to say goodbye this summer.

The consensus is that James Maddison is far too good to be playing Championship football and as a result, will also leave Leicester this summer.
