- The Croatian moved to King Power Stadium from Dinamo Zagreb in August 2018 

The 22-year-old Croatian joined the Foxes on a five-year-deal from Dinamo Zagreb in August 2018 and made his debut for the Club in an EFL Cup tie against Fleetwood Town during the same month.

A product of Dinamo Zagreb’s youth academy, Benković made his full international debut in a friendly fixture against Tunisia in June 2019 after enjoying a successful loan spell under Brendan Rodgers at Celtic last season, where he played 27 times in all competitions for The Bhoys.

He was also part of Croatia’s Under-21 side that competed in the UEFA European Under-21 Championship last summer.

Benković has made one appearance for the Foxes this season in a 2-0 Emirates FA Cup win over Wigan Athletic, as well as three for the Club’s Under-21s side in the Leasing.com Trophy.

He will now continue his progression with Lee Johnson's outfit, who are next in action against QPR on Saturday.
