Fofana won't face Chelsea on Saturday

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that Wesley Fofana won't play any part against Chelsea this weekend.

The Frenchman is currently the subject of strong interest from the Blues and they have already failed with three bids to sign him.

A fourth offer appears likely in the coming days and amidst this, Rodgers has confirmed that Fofana won't face the London giants.

The 21-year-old's head has turned after the transfer interest from the Blues, and he is said to be pushing for a transfer to Stamford Bridge.

Despite his plea, the Foxes are adamant that he won't be leaving the club unless their £85 million valuation is met by the Blues.

So far, Thomas Tuchel's side have proposed to pay £70 million plus add-ons, but the Foxes want a fixed £85 million fee to sell Fofana.

Fofana has been training with the Under 21s in recent days, and he will be hoping that the Blues sign him before the transfer deadline.
