Leicester fans are all probably getting carried away with the ongoing #Vardy100 fest on their club’s official Twitter account, and who can blame them? Becoming the first player to score 100 Foxes goals since Gary Lineker is a stellar achievement, however, as he scored his 100th, Youri Tielemans scored his 1st and the fans want him permanently.

In truth, the way that Youri Tielemans got his first goal as a Leicester player was also down to the man who’s been heavily lauded by the club, Vardy. The England striker could have chosen to have a go at opening the scoring himself, yet he unselfishly laid the ball across for Tielemans to grab his first goal for the club, although after scoring two in the second half he’ll be questioning his decision to do that!
When Youri Tielemans was signed on-loan by Claude Puel it wasn’t a move that the fans believed would bring a lot of goals. The Belgian midfielder came through at Anderlecht and had incredible potential when he was snapped up by Monaco. However, he’s stagnated in Ligue 1 somewhat and so far his loan move to the Premier League has done him good. Now, though, after grabbing his first goal the fans all want him made a permanent addition at the King Power, and it’s clear to see why.

Loads of Leicester fans have been calling for Tielemans to stay at the club and would love to see the Belgian become Brendan Rodgers’ first signing when the summer comes around.
