Manager Paulo Sousa believes Blackpool target DJ Campbell could still have a future at Leicester.
Campbell, who scored 11 goals to help fire the Tangerines to the Premier League during a loan spell last season, was left out of the Foxes squad on Saturday.
"DJ is our player. He belongs to Leicester and we make the best decisions for the club. Blackpool keep pushing but until now we haven't decide yet," Sousa told BBC Radio Leicester.
However, Sousa admits he is not the type of manager to keep hold of an unhappy player.
He added: "If DJ does not have his mind in our club, then it is a good decision to stay out [of the side].
"He started the season scoring goals and was very happy and he is an important player, but when his head is not with us then it is better to leave him out as he can give us nothing."
