After joining the Club aged eight, City's No.22 is regarded as an integral member of Enzo Maresca's squad, leading the way with 15 league assists and 12 goals as the Foxes confirmed their place back in the Premier League at the first time of asking, as Sky Bet Championship champions.

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-21s 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 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 then 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.

In June of that year, Dewsbury-Hall committed his future to the Club with a new deal until 2027 after a campaign which also ended with a brace of individual awards as he scooped Leicester's Players' Player and Young Player of the Season.

A player with real quality and tenacity, the 25-year-old's talents were evident during his 31 Premier League appearances across 2022/23, but he could not prevent his boyhood club from suffering relegation to the Championship.

However, fast-forward 12 months and the Club are back in the top-flight, with Dewsbury-Hall steering the Foxes to promotion through a series of eye-catching midfield displays, no more so than on the opening day of the season, scoring a brace to overturn a one-goal deficit at home to rivals Coventry City in the M69 derby.

That led to a host of seasonal nominations and accolades, named in the Sky Bet Championship Team of the Season, being nominated for Sky Bet Championship Player of the Season and also being shortlisted for the PFA Fans' Player of the Year award.
