Leshabela not ruling out January loan


With the January transfer window coming closer, Leicester City midfielder Khanya Leshabela has not ruled out a loan move for the remainder of the season.


The 21-year-old was one of a few Leicester Under 23 players who remained at the King Power Stadium at the request of the club’s senior team coaches.

The club loaned out a number of budding stars in a bid to give them first team football. Leshabela recently comfirmed to FARPost that the decision to keep him was at the request of his senior coach.

However, his involvement has been limited to the bench twice in the Uefa Europa League where he was an unused substitute against both SC Braga and Zorya Luhansk in the group stages of the competition.

He is yet to get any minute and is considering a move away from the club in January. “Look, at the moment anything is possible, all I want is to play some first team football,” he said.

“I have been patient at the club for my chance and I still remain patient as I haven’t gotten my opportunity to play yet. If a good opportunity comes from a good club that is willing to give me the required minutes I wouldn’t mind going out to get more experience for the remainder of the season,” he added.

Ahead of him in the Leicester perking order is England midfielder James Madisson and the Soshanguve-born midfielder is aware it will take a lot to move up the ranks at the club.

“Its the best league in the world with some of the best footballers across the globe, so playing is not going to be easy, but life is about that little window you get and how you use it,” he concluded.
