In January, Leicester City signed Youri Tielemans on loan from AS Monaco and allowed Adrien Silva move to France on a temporary transfer as part of he deal.
The Foxes made the Belgium international’s signing permanent and before the deal was made official, there were reports suggesting Silva would be allowed to join the Ligue 1 side.
However, that hasn’t happened and the 30-year-old is still tied to Brendan Rodgers’ side since he has two more years left on his contract at the King Power Stadium.
On June 30th, the entourage of the Portugal international stressed there’s been no contacts with any club for a transfer.
Silva sat down for a lengthy interview with France Football and the former Sporting man made it clear that he wants to leave the Premier League club in the summer transfer window.
“It was an experience that I did not really like. So with the club, we decided to look for a solution together,” he explained.
“I did not have a good start (he spent first six months without playing because his transfer from Sporting to Leicester was recorded 14 seconds after the closing of the market). It was a difficult experience in terms of emotional stability.
“I wanted to discover the Premier League. I had the opportunity to do it. I saw what I wanted to see, but now my priority is to be happy, and for that I need to be on the pitch.”
Silva impressed during his short spell in Monaco and France Football asked the player if joining them is his first choice.
The Leicester owned midfielder said, “Yes, it’s my priority. You have to be grateful to the people who are reaching out to you. I will never forget what ASM did for me.
“I really felt it there. Everyone knows that with Jardim, we like to work together. He appreciates my qualities, I appreciate his, now we have to see what happens at the club level! Only that can unlock things…”
Silva’s named has been linked with Bordeaux, Marseille and Sporting. Responding to these claims, he said: “Interest is one thing, moving to an offer is another… For now, I have no concrete offer, and Leicester too.”
