Harry Maguire confirms that Leicester City refused to sell him to Manchester United during the summer transfer window.

Jose Mourinho and Premier League giants United wanted to bring Maguire to Old Trafford following the World Cup in Russian Federation but Leicester refused to part with the 25-year-old defender.

Southampton had been leading from the 52nd minute thanks to a goal from Ryan Bertrand, but the 2015/16 Premier League champions hit back through Demarai Gray and England's standout player at the World Cup, Harry Maguire.

Maguire has revealed that United were interested in signing him, but the defender "respected" the decision of the Leicester owners to hold firm.

And afterwards he was asked about the United rumours: "There was obviously a little bit of interest".

'The owners spoke with me and they reiterated that I wasn't for sale at any price.

"They gave me the opportunity to play for this club, such a good club on the rise and I respected their decision".

"I want to be on the pitch, whether it is for someone else or for Leicester", said Maguire.

On getting back to the normality of the Premier League after the World Cup, Maguire continued: 'It was tough, but I think that's just part and parcel of the job.

"I've been really impressed since I came back".
