However, United are said to have renewed their interest and Leicester boss Rodgers revealed on Tuesday that his club had turned down two offers for a player the Foxes are thought to value at £80 million [$99 million].In quotes published by the Leicester Mercury after Maguire played 45 minutes in a pre-season friendly against Scunthorpe United, Rodgers said: “It’s pretty simple really and we’re quite relaxed about it.”Harry is a top-class player. Of course, he has attracted interest with two bids coming in but they nowhere near meet the valuation of the club.”Harry is relaxed about it – we are. He’s been absolutely brilliant, I have to add, because I’ve been in a similar situation a number of times and it can be very difficult for players, but he’s a special guy.”Maguire joined Leicester from Hull City in 2017 and has gone on to make 76 appearances for the Foxes while scoring five goals during his time at the King Power Stadium.He’s also earned 20 caps for England, all during his Leicester stay, including a key role as part of England’s fourth-place squad at the 2014 World Cup in Russia.There have been reports that Maguire has informed Leicester of his desire to leave and though Rodgers would not comment on those suggestions, he did admit he saw the appeal of the clubs linked with his player.”Any conversation with me and a player would be private,” he added.”If a team like Man City or Man United are interested, I understand the attraction.”We’re relaxed because until the valuation is met, there’s not a decision to be made.”Leicester are set to face Cheltenham on Saturday as the club continues its pre-season preparations.last_img read more

Premier Supports Labour Mobility at National Meeting

first_imgPremier Rodney MacDonald spoke out in support of fair, transparent and accountable labour mobility within Canada at the 2008 Council of the Federation meeting which wrapped up today, July 18, in Quebec City. Quebec Premier Jean Charest chaired the meeting attended by all of Canada’s provincial and territorial leaders. “We want to make it easier and more attractive for externally trained professionals to live and work in Nova Scotia, and other areas of the country,” said Premier MacDonald. The premier pointed out that Nova Scotia has already taken steps to do that through legislation introduced this spring. The Fair Access to Regulated Professions Legislation, Bill 126, is at second reading and includes measures for: — establishing a common process for certification and licensing that is easily understood by the general public — ensuring a process is established to address the specific needs of internationally-educated professionals applying for registration — assessing qualifications in a manner that is compliant with the federal agreement on internal trade — expediting the decision-making process and response time to applicants — ensuring a process is in place for individuals to appeal registration decisions The premiers stressed that full labour market participation and unimpeded mobility of workers is vital to Canada’s economic growth. They agreed to amend the federal Agreement on Internal Trade by Jan. 1, 2009. The amendments will ensure that any worker certified for an occupation by a regulatory authority in one province or territory will be recognized as qualified to practice in that occupation by all other provinces and territories. The premiers further directed that exceptions to full labour market mobility will have to be clearly identified and justified as necessary to meet a legitimate objective, such as protection of public health or safety.last_img read more
