West Bromwich Albion have been dealt a big blow after Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri today confirmed at his press conference Ghana international Jeffrey Schlupp is staying at the club.
West Brom are refusing to give up the chase for the wide man, despite having a £12m bid rejected.
The Baggies are preparing another offer for the Ghana international.
He wants more playing time after starting 14 league games last season and is keen on a switch to The Hawthorns but Ranieri remains adamant he will remain at the King Power Stadium.
He said: “He stays with us, he is very happy. It is always good news. I am happy when I have this position, a lot of players. It is important to have a lot of quality players to choose from.”
