Sven-Goran Eriksson is set to offer Leicester midfielder Richie Wellens a new contract.

Wellens has reportedly been a target of Premier League club Birmingham, but Eriksson has said he would not consider selling such a key player as he attempts to mastermind a promotion challenge.

"He has one and a half years left on his current contract and, while we haven't offered him a new contract, that is a formality" Eriksson told the Leicester Mercury.

"We don't want to lose him. I think he is very happy here. I don't think he wants to leave.

"As a club, as far as I know, we haven't heard anything from any club.


"I spoke to the owners and the chief executive on Saturday and I haven't heard anything, and they would tell me."
