- New Leicester City contract for Hamza Choudhury to 2023
- England Under-21 international is a graduate of the Club’s Academy
- Midfielder has started all three Premier League fixtures for the Foxes this term
The 21-year-old, who hails from Loughborough, has started all of City’s Premier League games this season against Wolves, Chelsea and Sheffield United and has impressed in midfield for Brendan Rodgers’ side after playing a significant part in pre-season.
An England Under-21 international, Choudhury joined the Club as a seven-year-old and made his Foxes debut in an EFL Cup clash against Liverpool in September 2017, before making his top-flight bow at home to Tottenham Hotspur later that season and featuring in each of LCFC’s final seven fixtures of the 2017/18 campaign.
Prior to starring for the Foxes, the tough-tackling midfielder enjoyed two loan spells at Burton Albion in Sky Bet League One and the Championship. He made 28 appearances in total while in Staffordshire and helped the Brewers to promotion to the second tier.
He featured on 12 occasions in all competitions for City last year and played a prominent role towards the end of the season by starting the final three fixtures of the campaign to help the Foxes to a ninth-placed finish in the Premier League.
During his time at Leicester City’s Academy, Choudhury was part of the Under-18s side that reached the semi-finals of the FA Youth Cup in 2014/15 for only the second time in the Club’s history and went on to captain the Development Squad.
So far this term, he has caught the eye with three industrious Premier League displays in the centre of midfield in games against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Chelsea and Sheffield United respectively.
