The highly-rated 23-year-old 'keeper brought a wealth of experience to King Power Stadium having made over 100 career appearances, including in the UEFA Women’s Champions League.
Leitzig began her youth career with TuS Mingolsheim before being scouted by TSG 1899 Hoffenheim in 2013.
Following eight successful years in the Baden-Württemberg region of Germany, the shot-stopper attracted the interest of German giants FC Bayern Munich.

Her loan spell during the 2022/23 season saw her claim both the Player of the Season and Players' Player of the season award, before making the move to Leicestershire permanent in July of 2023, to take the No.1 shirt at the Foxes.
