Wojciech Szczesny wants Leicester to win the Premier League title - despite still being an Arsenal employee.

The Gunners keeper is on a season-long loan at Roma and with Petr Cech safe as Arsene Wenger's No 1 choice keeper, his long-term future at the Emirates is up in the air.  

And the Pole told Sky Sports in Italy that he would like to see Claudio Ranieri's Foxes go on to win the title.

"No one in football can explain the Leicester miracle," he told Sky in Italy before Leicester's win over Sunderland on Super Sunday.

"Even though I support Arsenal in the Premier League, I'd like to see Ranieri's side win it. They're an example and an inspiration to everyone. It's exciting to watch them play."

Szczesny has made it clear that he is open to making his loan move with Roma permanent, but admits he is unsure whether the two clubs will cut a deal.

"Everyone knows I'm really happy here," he said. "I'd like to be able to tell you about my future, but I don't know what it holds for me.

"I've expressed my intentions to the two clubs and now it's up to them. I have to decide what's best for my career."
