The 20-year-old central midfielder, who captained City’s youngsters at the HKFC Citi Soccer Sevens in May, was named as the Club’s Development Squad Player of the Season last term.
A reliable and talented member of Leicester’s Under-23s squad, Dewsbury-Hall is now looking to build on the progress he’s already made to enter contention to make a first team outing.
“I’m delighted to finally get it done,” the Shepshed-based Academy graduate told LCFC TV. “Obviously, a lot of stuff goes into a signing a contract, so it’s nice to get it all over the line.

“Obviously, I’ve signed for three years here and I’m looking to push on now, hopefully make a name for myself, get into the first team and just keep playing.
“My aspiration as a kid was to become a Premier League player so hopefully that’ll happen and I’ll see where it takes me.”

Dewsbury-Hall has enjoyed a preview of life in City’s first team over previous months, often training with the Club’s senior stars and Brendan Rodgers in midweek at Belvoir Drive.
That experience, coupled with his impressive performances in Premier League 2 Division 1 for the Development Squad, gives him confidence that he can one day make the next step.
“Luckily enough, I get to do a lot of training with the first team and it’s fantastic,” he added.
“Everybody’s on it and it just makes you a better player every time you’re with them, so the more sessions I can get in, the better it makes me and the more confident it makes me.
“Going to the training pitch and learning new things, obviously with Brendan [Rodgers], who is a great manager, is only going to benefit me.
I’m not looking to sit on my laurels and just be content. I want to push on now and hopefully when I get my opportunity, I’ll take that.Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall LCFC TV
“You have to look back on what you’ve done well and how you’ve played, but you always have to look forward to think: ‘How can I get better? What can I do to get to the next level?’
“That’s definitely what I’m looking to do. I’m not looking to sit on my laurels and just be content. I want to push on now and hopefully when I get my opportunity, I’ll take that.”
