Leicester City’s relegation to the Championship will prompt plenty of players to leave the Foxes and Youri Tielemans has taken to social media to announce his exit.
The Belgium international is out of contract at the King Power at the end of June and the midfielder is attracting interest from several Premier League clubs.
According to the Birmingham Mail, Aston Villa are strong contenders for Tieleman’s signature as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of playing in Europe next season.
Speaking on The Walk On Podcast this month, The Athletic’s James Pearce stated about a Liverpool move for the Premier League star: “Tielemans I would put in the bracket of being a possibility just because he’s free.”
The Reds are unlikely to make a move for the 26-year-old but it is not out of the equation given that the Merseyside club plan to bring in three midfielders over the summer.
On Wednesday, Tielemans announced his exit from Leicester and wrote a message to the Foxes’ fanbase.
The midfielder said on Instagram: “Dear Leicester fans, after four and a half special years and with a lot of gratitude I’m bidding farewell to this incredible club,” the Belgium international said in a video on Instagram.
“From the first day I set foot on this ground, your warmth and passion embraced me.
“Victory and triumph, love, hope and even defeat, we’ve shared many special moments together.
“I am forever grateful for your unwavering support, thank you to Khun Top, the board, the staff, the players and fans for having given me and my family a home.
“This is not a goodbye, but a heartfelt farewell. With pride, love and eternal gratitude, Youri Tielemans.”

Joao Felix could move on from Atletico Madrid this summer with a big offer said to be in front of the Portuguese winger.
The big news coming out of Chelsea yesterday was that incoming manager Mauricio Pochettino does not want Felix as part of his Blues squad next season, meaning he will be sent back to Atleti this summer.
Now, in an interview with AStv, journalist Manu Sainz detailed what the future holds for the 23-year old.
“Pochettino has of course said that he does not want Felix as part of his team next season, but when he returns to Atletico, he is going to have teams to go to, important teams.
“I’m told that his situation is going to be resolved by sending him to a team with a big offer in Europe that loves him, I’m unsure who that team is but I’m told a move is not going to be an issue.”
With Felix set to say goodbye to Chelsea, a team where it was well documented that he felt at home with, it’ll be interesting to see if he’ll be able to get comfortable at another club this summer, whoever that may be.

Man United are not optimistic about signing Tottenham’s Harry Kane this summer despite the striker being their number one target.
According to Football Insider, the Manchester club have negative feelings about a move for the England international as they believe Daniel Levy will play hardball and drag the saga on throughout the summer window.
Erik ten Hag is said to want to wrap up all of Man United’s business early in the window in order to prepare his squad for a title challenge ahead of the new campaign. The Dutch coach is targeting another goalkeeper, a centre-back, a midfielder and most important of all, a number nine.
Kane is Man United’s number one target with the striker’s contract expiring next summer, meaning that this is the last transfer window where Tottenham can get a really good fee for the 29-year-old.
The Spurs star would be a huge game-changer for Ten Hag should he land the Englishman as the Tottenham superstar has had a sensational season.

Watch Paulo Dybala put Roma in from against Sevilla in the Europa League final in what has so far been a very tense match.
There’s been plenty of gamesmanship so far from both sides so far – by players and coaching staff – but Dybala won’t care as he’s given the Italians the lead.
Sevilla asked for a foul in midfield but didn’t get it, and Gianluca Mancini pounced on the loose ball to pass to Dybala, who got between two Sevilla defenders and slotted past Yassine Bounou.

Karim Benzema is set to leave Real Madrid after 14 years in order to move to Saudi Arabia to play for champions Al Ittihad.
The news broke on Tuesday that the French superstar was considering an offer from Saudi Arabia but Madrid outlet AS are now reporting that the forward is almost certain to make the move.
The government of Saudi Arabia are believed to have been working on the signing of Benzema for months and everything seems to indicate that they have finally managed to convince him.
The 35-year-old will sign a two-year contract at Al Ittihad worth a staggering €100m euros tax-free per season.
Benzema is out of contract with Real Madrid at the end of the season but many expected the striker to stay for another year. The La Liga giants were not planning to bring in another world-class number nine during the upcoming window but that will have to change now.
The French superstar has been an incredible servant for Real over the years and that peaked last season with the 35-year-old’s sensational campaign earning him the Ballon d’Or.

Gabri Veiga looks set to join Newcastle this summer despite being heavily linked with a transfer to Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.
This comes from Marca, who claim that the Magpies have stolen a march on Liverpool for Veiga, with their Champions League credentials a big reason as to why.
The Magpies finished 4th in the league this season, securing their place in Europe’s elite competition for the first time since 2003 and look set to welcome some big names to St. James’ Park this summer, starting with Veiga.
The 21-year old has burst onto the La Liga scene in 2022/23, playing 39 matches in all competitions for Celta Vigo, who need a win on the final day of the league season this Sunday to guarantee their top-flight survival.
Whether or not Celta stay up this season, the demand that Veiga is in makes it look all the more likely that he will depart Estadio de Balaídos and with a release clause of €30million (per Marca), you’d be hard-pressed to bet against Newcastle triggering that clause this summer.
