Wellens is preparing himself for pre-season training after Leicester lost out to Watford in the Championship play-off semi-finals last term.

The classy playmaker found himself out of favour at Leicester last term and spent a spell out on loan at Ipswich.

Wellens, who is entering the final year of his contract, is keen to impress Foxes boss Nigel Pearson this summer and win his place back in the side.

"I am looking forward to the new season with Leicester City," Wellens told Sky Sports.

"I believe I am one of the best midfielders in the Championship and I am looking to establish myself back in the Leicester starting XI next season.

"I think I will benefit from a full pre-season under my belt this summer so I can hit the ground running.

"I have one year left on my contract at Leicester City and I am hoping to conclude that with promotion to the Premier League as that is the aim of the club next season."
