Ranieri rules out selling star duo


Leicester manager Claudo Ranieri has warned would be suitors that Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez will not be sold in January.

Less than a year after finding themselves rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table, the Foxes moved top courtesy of their 2-1 win over Chelsea on Monday night.

Ranieri's men have lost just one of their 16 games this season and are just six points short of the total number they scored during their 2014-15 season.

Vardy has been in sensational form for the club this season, scoring his 15th goal of the campaign against Chelsea, while Mahrez netted his 11th as he secured all three points for the Foxes.

Their form has led to reports that they will be targeted by some of Europe's biggest club's in January, but Ranieri has no intention of selling the pair.

"No one can buy Vardy or Mahrez in January. They don't have the money and they don't have a price," Ranieri said.

"I think the performance of Mahrez and Vardy was fantastic, but they are only the pinnacle of the iceberg because behind them there is a big spirit who work and help each other.

"We know Vardy and Mahrez are our credit cards but to do this, it is important that the other players play well too."
