Leicester City striker Leonardo Ulloa has ruled out a move away from the club this summer, despite speculation linking him with a transfer to its league rivals, as reported by the ​Leicester Mercury.


The Argentine, who joined the Foxes from Brighton for a club record fee of £8m last summer, is believed to be a target for West Brom and Crystal Palace, as revealed by Spanish football journalist Guillem Balague on Twitter.

But after enjoying an impressive debut season in the Premier League last year, scoring 14 goals, 11 of which were in the league, Ulloa has assured fans that he is happy at the club and is not going anywhere.


"I have three years left on my contract and the truth is I'm very comfortable in Leicester," the 28-year-old said.

"My family is happy and I'm enjoying having come to a place where I wanted to be. I want to stay.


"You always want the best. If it happens it will mean that you're doing things right. But now I think only Leicester and prepare for a season that will be very long."


Despite bagging 11 league goals in 2014/15, Ulloa struggled for consistency during the middle part of the season, scoring his first goal of 2015 in April after starting his career at the King Power Stadium and ending the campaign strongly.


The interest from Premier League rivals West Brom and Crystal Palace is understandable, as both clubs are looking to add firepower to their respective ranks in the close season and are looking to Ulloa to correct their deficiencies.
