Leicester City are set to double Demarai Gray’s wages after refusing to sell the winger in the summer, according to The Mirror.
The story claims Tottenham had a bid for the 21-year-old rejected last month, as did Bournemouth. Reports in August suggested those offers were worth around £25 million.
But Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare claims no club matched the Foxes’ valuation of Gray.
“I am aware we got bids,” said Shakespeare. “They didn’t meet our valuation — and we didn’t want to sell Demarai anyway.”
As a result, Leicester will hand Gray a new contract that will see his £25,000-a-week wages double to £50,000-a-week.
It remains to be seen whether Spurs will go back in for the player at a later date.
