Leicester manager Paulo Sousa has played down speculation that goalkeeper Chris Weale is leaving the club but has conceded he could sell him at the right price.

Weale is believed to be attracting interest from West Ham, although the club have yet to receive an official approach from the Premier League side.

But Sousa is keen to keep hold of striker Steve Howard, who has been linked with a move to Huddersfield, and he told the Leicester Mercury: "No-one has contacted me about Chris. When that happens, then everyone will get to know.

"With the right price, we can think about it, why not? The club is bigger than everyone. Everyone can leave and everyone can come but for now we are not thinking about it."

On Howard, he added: "Steve is a player who gives us something different and he has experience. Of course we want every player to commit to the club and myself.

"He is an important player in the squad but I want to keep only the players who commit with myself and the club."
