Danny Simpson has explained that Leicester City’s players will not get involved in any potential transfers for Algerian Riyad Mahrez and striker Jamie Vardy.

The duo have been strongly linked with transfers away from the King Power Stadium, with Mahrez drawing particular interest from Serie A giants Roma.

Simpson says the other players don’t get involved in transfer business, leaving it up to the individuals and clubs in question to work out the issues themselves.

“When you’ve got good players in your team they’re going to get linked to teams in every window,” Simpson told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast Show.

“It’s probably more frustrating for the fans and the manager. For the lads it is what it is and we want people to stay at Leicester.

“But at the same time you can’t really get involved if a so called big team wants to take them [Mahrez and Vardy].

“I want them to stay because they’re great players. But at the same time you don’t really get involved because it’s their decision and the club’s decision.”
