Brendan Rodgers confirms Leicester exit clause amid Arsenal speculation

Brendan Rodgers admitted there is a clause in his contract that could allow him to join Arsenal, after being heavily linked with a move to the Emirates.

The former Liverpool manager has worked wonders with Leicester City and a late winner from Kelechi Iheanacho against Everton saw them extend their winning run in the Premier League to six games.

They are in second place behind league leaders Liverpool and Rodgers’ efforts have seen him linked with the vacant post in north London.

Arsenal sacked Unai Emery earlier this week after a series of poor results and it was reported there’s a £14million exit clause in Rodgers’ contract should they want to poach the ex-Celtic boss.

And Rodgers confirmed such a clause is in place. ‘There probably is in most manager’s contracts,’ Rodgers said. ‘It’s all hypothetical, all these types of situations.

‘I think for me in this moment we’ve had a brilliant win today, we came back really, really well. My focus is very much with Leicester. ‘I made a change eight or nine months ago, I came into here and I’ve been so happy since I’ve come into here and I’ve been so happy to come into here to work with the players, we still have a lot of work to do. ‘So like I said, most manager’s contracts will have something in that but my only concentration is Leicester.
