Puel happy for defender to stay on-loan
Leicester defender Filip Benkovic will be allowed to stay on-loan at Celtic for the rest of the season, according to Claude Puel.
The Croatian joined Leicester from Dinamo Zagreb over the summer but he was immediately loaned out to the Scottish champions for the 2018-19 campaign.
Benkovic has turned out 13 times for Celtic in the Scottish Premiership, scoring twice, and reports suggested he could be recalled by in January.
However, the Frenchman is happy for the 21-year-old to continue his development north of the border.
"If we don't get any injuries, it's better Filip maintains his loan at Celtic," Puel told BBC Radio Leicester.
