LEICESTER boss Brendan Rodgers has declared Wesley Fofana and James Maddison are NOT for sale to deal Chelsea and Newcastle a major blow.

The pair have been heavily linked with moves away from the King Power Stadium this summer, with both players subject to failed bids.

Thomas Tuchel has made landing centre-back Fofana a key priority, with it claimed how the Blues had been knocked back with an opening offer of £63million.

And SunSport understands that the West London outfit will be willing to meet the Foxes' whopping £85m valuation of the Frenchman.

Meanwhile Newcastle have been turned down twice in their attempt to bring playmaker Maddison to St James' Park.

Their second bid is said to have been worth just over £40m, with Leicester believed to be holding out for around £60m.

And Rodgers has now issued a hands off warning to potential suitors for the duo.

The ex-Liverpool boss commented on their futures at the club in his pre-match press conference ahead of Sunday's clash against Brentford.

He remarked: "Wesley Fofana and James Maddison are not for sale.

"These are very important players to us.

"We're in a situation where we need to move some players out but that doesn't mean getting rid of anyone, our best assets.

"It’s something the club are very strong on.

"At this moment in time, James and Wesley are training very well and working hard for our game on Sunday.

"That’s (deciding who leaves) down to the club. For me, I concentrate on football.”

‘What’s he done to deserve that?’ – Chelsea fans mocked for their DREADFUL song for new signing Kalidou Koulibaly

KALIDOU KOULIBALY has already stolen the hearts of the Chelsea faithful following his standout performance in their Premier League opener against Everton.

The defender 75 minutes alongside Thiago Silva and club captain Cesar Azpilicueta before being replaced by Marc Cucurella.

Chelsea fans have somehow managed to come up with a worse chant than ‘Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea. Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea.’ pic.twitter.com/soKjnaZlOR

Koulibaly won 100 per cent of his tackles, completed all of his dribbles, made 31 passes, one clearance, one interception and one last man tackle.

But as a reward for his fine form, Chelsea fans have come up with DREADFUL chant.

The chant goes: "Aaaaaaaaay Koulibaly, ooh aah, I wanna knoooow he's from Senegal."

Some say it rivals the Blues' famous "Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea" chant.

One fan responded on Twitter saying: "Can't be real, no way man."

Another footy fan said: "That Koulibaly song. What’s the poor bloke done to deserve that?"

The chant has also left fans asking for clarity.

Responding to the video, another Twitter user said: "Are they asking us or telling us he's from Senegal? Need some clarity here."

Up next for Koulibaly will arguably be his biggest test in a Chelsea shirt.

The Blues face rivals Tottenham next on August 14.

And Spurs arguably have the best front three in the Premier League.

A front three of Son Heung-min, Harry Kane and Dejan Kulusevski has the potential to run riot at Stamford Bridge.
