Leicester have turned down bids from two clubs for highly-rated defender Joe Mattock, skysports.com understands.
Mattock's future at Leicester has been the subject of speculation over the summer since their relegation from the Championship last season.
The talented left-back was one of Leicester's brightest lights last season and his performances have caught the attention of a host of clubs.
Mattock is regarded as one the most promising young players in England and he is the second youngest player to represent England Under 21s.
Aston Villa, Liverpool, Everton, West Ham, Sunderland and Reading have all been credited with an interest in Mattock and they are thought to be keeping tabs on the player.
Two clubs are believed to have firmed up their interest in the player and tabled seven-figure offers for Mattock this week as they look to sign the player before the close of the transfer window.
Leicester are keen to keep hold of their prize asset and have turned down the two bids from the mystery suitors.
It remains to be seen if the two interested parties come back in with new improved bids for the full-back before Monday's transfer deadline.
