After joining the Club aged eight, City's No.22 is now regarded as an integral member of Brendan Rodgers' first-team squad, making 44 appearances in 2021/22, lifting the FA Community Shield, scoring three goals, and helping the side to each the semi-finals of the UEFA Europa Conference League. 

It was a campaign which also ended with a brace of individual awards as Dewsbury-Hall scooped Leicester's Players' Player and Young Player of the Season.

He grew up in Shepshed, Leicestershire, and has progressed through the ranks of the Club's Academy to represent both the Under-18s and Under-23s sides before his first team debut in the Emirates FA Cup in 2020. After emerging through the Under-18s, the talented central midfielder quickly made his mark for City's Development Squad to become a regular among the starting XI in Premier League 2.

In the summer of 2019, meanwhile, Dewsbury-Hall captained a young Foxes team at the annual Hong Kong Citi Soccer Sevens tournament - a role previously held by fellow graduate Hamza Choudhury. After winning the Club's Development Squad Player of the Season award in 2019, he signed a new contract until 2022 before making his senior debut in an FA Cup tie at Brentford in January 2020.

In the 68th minute at Griffin Park, Dewsbury-Hall replaced goalscorer Kelechi Iheanacho to help City secure a place in the fifth round of the FA Cup during a 1-0 victory over the second-tier Bees. Following that occasion in the capital, he then embarked on a maiden loan spell of his career at Sky Bet League 1 side Blackpool, scoring four goals in just 10 appearances for the Tangerines.

Another loan spell, at Luton Town in the Sky Bet Championship, followed in 2020/21 as Dewsbury-Hall's talents made headlines in the second tier. The young Foxes midfielder made a total of 40 appearances in all competitions for the Hatters, netting three goals.

After being instrumental as Nathan Jones’ side finished 12th in the Championship, the 22-year-old received the Ian Pearce Memorial Trophy, given for most man of the match performances at home in ratings from the Luton News, Junior Supporters’ Player of the Season, Internet Player of the Season and the Players’ Player of the Season at Kenilworth Road.

His return to Leicester City action included an appearance from the bench in the Club's FA Community Shield victory over Manchester City at Wembley Stadium in August 2021. A Premier League debut, on the other hand, followed on 28 August, from the bench, in a 2-1 win at Norwich City.

More substitute appearances would follow before a full Premier League debut at Aston Villa in December. Four days later, a maiden goal in European competition followed as Dewsbury-Hall struck for the Foxes in Italy during a 3-2 defeat by Napoli in the UEFA Europa League. 

Over the Christmas period in 2021, with the sound of his name being sung to the tune of Oasis' Wonderwall, Dewsbury-Hall continued to impress, helping Leicester to successes over Newcastle United and Liverpool, as his rapid emergence continued at speed.

A second European goal, in the UEFA Europa Conference League, arrived against Randers in February, before a maiden Premier League strike - an excellent hit from range - came in a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace two months later. A player with real quality and tenacity, there is much excitement about what the future has in store for City's No.22. In June of that year, Dewsbury-Hall committed his future to the Club with a new deal until 2027.
