Fringe man Christian Fuchs is not looking to leave Leicester in January as he wants to fight for his place in Claude Puel’s plans.
The 32-year-old Austria international full-back, who joined the Foxes on a free transfer from Schalke in summer 2015 and played a big role in that following season’s Premier League title success, has been restricted to just three Carabao Cup appearances this season.

The emergence of Ben Chilwell has left Fuchs on the sidelines and resulted in speculation that he could be offloaded in next month’s transfer window given that he will be out of contract in the summer.
However, Fuchs has spoken out to insist that he wants to stay and fight for his place at the King Power Stadium.
He said: “I’m trying to give my best for the club, that’s always been the case. “I’m always very straightforward and I’m aware of my situation.
I believe whenever I’ve played I’ve tried my best and performed well. “The gaffer knows he can rely on me, if there’s a need. I’m not doing things half-heartedly, I’m just trying to give me best.”
Chilwell’s form has earned him five England caps this term after breaking into Gareth Southgate’s squad and Fuchs believes the 21-year-old has what it takes to reach the top.
He said: “Ben is at the very beginning. A lot of things are happening very fast for him, being in the national team, and it’s about keeping the level of performance.
“I’m convinced of his talent, I’ve seen him over the last three years, and it’s down to him what he makes of it. “He knows what he has to do. He knows the game, but sometimes you see things better when you’re watching from the outside.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
