Leicester City plan to offer centre-back Harry Maguire a bumper new contract to fend off any interest accrued from bigger clubs following some stellar World Cup displays.

According to the Times, the Foxes are set to make Maguire one of their highest-paid players alongside the likes of Kasper Schmeichel and Jamie Vardy, with the defender in line to earn around £120,000 per week should he put pen to paper on a new deal.

While Maguire is already under contract with Leicester until 2022, other clubs are bound to be interested following the defender's impressive transition to the international stage and the club's hierarchy will surely act to prevent his departure this summer.

Maguire, who has spent one season at the King Power Stadium, has excelled for England at the World Cup with his strong defensive performances and became the toast of the entire nation on Saturday after putting the Three Lions ahead against Sweden with a powerful header.

The defender's newfound acclaim has sent the internet into a whirlwind of discussion regarding his future and Leicester will be keen not to lose any more key players following the departure of Riyad Mahrez on Tuesday.

Mahrez, who won the PFA Players' Player of the Year Award in 2015/16 as Leicester won the Premier League title, joined Manchester City this week for a fee of £60m.

City attempted to sign the Algerian winger in January following an injury to Leroy Sane but were rejected by Leicester due to the lack of time to find a replacement and the two clubs' inability to settle on acceptable fee for the winger.
