Exciting 19-year-old midfielder Khanya Leshabela joined the Foxes' Academy in March 2013.

He has been in fine form for the Development Squad during the 2018/19 season, with his performances earning him a place in Claude Puel’s squad for the Carabao Cup game against Southampton in November.

After an impressive campaign with Leicester City’s Under-18s in 2017/18, in which he was nominated for the Academy Player of the Year Award, the South African has continued his progression at Under-23 level.

He caught the eye with a stunning Premier League Cup strike against Nottingham Forest earlier in the campaign and also represented the Football Club three times in the 2016/17 UEFA Youth League.

Khanya signed a new long-term deal with the Club in January 2019.
