Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has ruled himself out of the Arsenal job although he confirmed that his contract with the Foxes has a release clause.

Rodgers has been linked with the Arsenal job after the dismissal of Unai Emery. The Northen Irishman has impressed a number of elite clubs with his job at Leicester since he took over in February.

It appeared that Rodgers had opened the door to a move to the Emirates after he responded to reports of a £14m release clause saying: “There probably is [a clause] in most manager’s contracts. It is all hypothetical.”

However, as the interview with Sky Sports progressed, he insisted that he would be staying put at Leicester City. Rodgers watched his side garner a sixth consecutive win in the Premier League in dramatic fashion in the 2:1 win against Everton on Sunday.

When asked if he sees himself staying put at the King Power, he replied: “Yeah, very much so,” he said.

“It [the Arsenal speculation] doesn’t annoy me. I don’t think so much about it. It’s not in my control.

“I came here to help the project and see if we could bring it forward. I’m at a great club. I absolutely love it here.

“It seems now you’re talking about a manager losing their job all the time and looking to be replaced.

“Names will get thrown right, left and centre. For the Arsenal job there are probably about ten names.

“Me, I’m just concentrating on Leicester.”
