Danny Drinkwater’s future at Premier League champions Leicester City has been cast in doubt, with The Sun stating that the midfielder has rejected a new contract and is wanted by Tottenham.
The former Manchester United battler was an essential member of the Foxes side that won a momentous title last term, starring alongside N’Golo Kante.

However, speculation over the England international’s future has been drawn out in the media of late as the 26-year-old is said to be stalling on a new deal at the King Power Stadium.
Drinkwater is believed to have turned down an improved offer from Claudio Ranieri’s men that would pay him £80,000 per week.
The uncertainty over the Manchester-born star’s future has led to Tottenham being reported as a potential suitor.
Mauricio Pochettino demands hard work, commitment and ability on the ball of his players – and in this regard Drinkwater would certainly fit the bill.
Only advantage of Kante leaving is that Drinkwater will get credit he deserves. Outstanding last season. Crazy he didn't go to Euros. #LCFC

However, with Spurs already adding Victor Wanyama to their ranks this summer, the White Hart Lane side have plenty of options in central midfield already.
Leicester have lost Kante to Chelsea and will hope to hold onto Drinkwater to keep the team strong, especially after losing their Premier League opener 2-1 to newly promoted Hull City.
