Sporting Lisbon midfielder Adrien Silva has insisted that he is fully committed to the club after a potential move to Leicester City failed.

The Premier League champions were interested in securing the services of the player and according to the player's father had come up with a €30m bid for the player during the final stages of the transfer window.

However, the Portuguese side denied that they had received any such bid and therefore a move to the English top flight didn't materialise.

The midfielder on his part has now taken to Facebook in order to clarify his stance on the situation, insisting that his commitment continues to be with his club, for whom he will give 100 per cent.

Thanking all his well wishers and supporters the 27-year-old wrote on his Facebook page: "I want to thank all those who support me.  


"Winning challenges is part of the DNA of any professional and I am ready to meet those that come."

Silva is presently occupied with international duty with his Portugal side set to take on Switzerland in a World Cup qualifier on Tuesday and according to him when he returns the concentration will be back to his club, for whom he has always tried to give his all.

"Now I am at the service of my country and when I return back to the club for which I have always given everything from my childhood, I will have the same commitment as always with the same ambition and dedication."
