Arsenal are considering making a move for Brendan Rodgers

Brendan Rodgers insists he is very happy to continue at Leicester - despite being on Arsenal`s shortlist to take over as head coach.

Arsenal are on the hunt for a new head coach after sacking Unai Emery last Friday and the Leicester manager is among the candidates they are considering to succeed him.

Rodgers has reiterated that he is enjoying life at Leicester but refused to answer whether he would be interested in a move to Arsenal should they come calling.

I have a contract here until 2022 and thus far - and I know managers are losing their jobs - but the club have not indicated to me that they are going to sack me, said Rodgers.

I think they`re pretty happy with how we are working and like I said, I`m very happy, and I have no reason to look elsewhere.

I think logic would tell you - I know in your job it`s not always logical, there`s gossip and speculation - but why would I want to leave Leicester City, at this moment in time.

I`m working with a young group of players that`s got so much potential and want to improve and develop.

I was asked a question yesterday about my contract, talking about clauses and stuff like that, and I gave an honest answer which was based on most managers probably have something in their contract. And by all accounts that opened the door for something.

I repeat, I`m very happy here. I think there is a lot for us to develop over the next few seasons. We are moving to a new training facility.

I respect that there`ll always be this speculation around jobs and there is probably for a number of managers.

For me, I repeat, I`m happy here, very happy and have great relations with all the people and I feel I want to continue with that. Take from that what you want.
