Leicester manager Claude Puel insists there has been no progress on transfers at the club - in or out.

The 2015/16 Premier League champions have been linked with several players this month. The latest is Marseille full-back Bouna Sarr with reports in France stating Leicester have had two bids for the defender rejected.

Meanwhile speculation persists that Foxes striker Islam Slimani is a target for Turkish club Besiktas.

Puel is looking to add to his squad but ahead of Saturday's home game against Watford he said: "We are not close at the moment to sign any player. I think we work normally in this window. "It is important to keep our focus about our transfer window. If we cannot find a good player with good attributes, who can strengthen the squad, I think it is important to keep this squad, because they have a fantastic attitude.

"If we can improve the squad we will sign a player but at the moment we are not close.

"For Slimani, I cannot give all the details about an individual player.

"I repeat what I have said all along, we have a lot of strikers and we need to make a good balance in the team and give some game time for all the players. We will see if some player can win some game time at other clubs."
