Vardy then made it a double cause for celebration for the Midlands outfit on transfer deadline day ending any question marks over his future by penning a new four-year contract that will keep him at the King Power Stadium until 2022.

"It is very good to have Harry back".

The English worldwide was, in fact, one of several defenders who were thought to be on Jose Mourinho's wishlist for the summer, as the manager looked to bolster his backline.

Manchester United are rumoured to want a new centre-back and Harry Maguire would quite happily fit the bill for Jose Mourinho - who is widely expected to bring one of Maguire, Jerome Boateng or Toby Alderweireld to Old Trafford in the forthcoming 24hrs.

Paul Pogba gave Manchester United the lead from the spot in the third minute.

Discussing his side's pre-season preparations, Puel addressed the difficulties of adapting around the World Cup, which resulted in 10 players returning at a staggered rate over the summer.

Hector Bellerin should complete the backline, with Stephan Lichtsteiner likely to be his backup this season. They write: "The new Gunners boss will be hoping Aaron Ramsey is fit after suffering a slight calf injury".

Riyad Mahrez responded negatively when Leicester blocked an initial move from Manchester City in January but Puel is confident that Maguire will have a different reaction. "He could have come here today (Friday) and his head could have been all over the place, but he did brilliantly", ESPN FC quotes Chilwell as saying.

Maguire will be in the Leicester squad for tomorrow's Premier League opener at United and Puel joked: "I can confirm he is going... He has made that clear to all of us", Chilwell added.

"We've learnt from the past that, if he takes too many players on like he did at Chelsea and Real Madrid, then there's only one thing that will happen". He is going to be here for the whole season.

"We showed good control, good football, a lot of chances".

"Harry, he's happy also to remain with us".
