Drinkwater waiting for Leicester offer

Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater admits he is still waiting for a new contract offer despite the Premier League champions moving to secure the futures of other stars.

The 26-year-old England international, who played a pivotal role in last season's remarkable title success, has seen contracts offered this summer to key trio Jamie Vardy, N'Golo Kante and Riyad Mahrez.

Vardy has already signed his four-year deal -- a second new contract in the last year -- after rejecting a move to Arsenal.

Drinkwater says he would also like to commit his future to the East Midlands club.

"I am not going chasing the club," said Drinkwater.

"It is up to them to approach me.

"I would love to commit but I just want to play football.

"I still have two years left on my contract so it is not a be all and end all if I don't sign a new one in the next few weeks.

"I'm still under contract so I can't really say too much but I'm a Leicester City player at the minute.

"It's up to them how they handle it."

Winger Marc Albrighton and captain Wes Morgan are among other players still waiting for offers after Vardy's future dominated the agenda in the close season.
