King pledges Foxes future

King pledges Foxes future

Leicester midfielder Andy King has insisted he has no intentions of leaving the Walkers Stadium anytime soon.

The 22-year-old's performances in a City shirt this season are unlikely to have gone unnoticed by bigger clubs, but King has distanced himself with a January move.

"I ignore it. In my eyes there is nowhere I would rather be at this moment than here at Leicester City," he told the Leicester Mercury.

"I love playing football here, and I think that shows in how I am playing and how the team is playing. Everyone is really confident at the moment and that is the reason we are doing well. The speculation will not affect me."

King was close to a move to Premier League side Aston Villa last year while Martin O'Neill was at the helm, but the deal eventually broke down.

The academy graduate has proved himself to be one of the Championship's finest attacking midfielders with his unrivalled knack of arriving in the box at the right time.

King is currently the club's top-goalscorer this season with eight goals to his name, including two in his last three league games.

"It is pleasing from a personal point of view," he said. "I feel I could have had a couple more but for a few decisions that haven't gone my way, but I am not going to complain.

"What is most pleasing for me is the way the team is playing at the moment and the good run we are on, and hopefully we can continue that at Bristol (tomorrow).

"It is something I have tried to do since I was young. I have always liked scoring goals, so I have worked on finishing and on trying to bring it into games, and fortunately I have managed that.

"It is something that you do so often in training for so many years that you do it instinctively.

"You have to stick with what you think and if the keeper makes a good save or you miss the target, then so be it."
