Peripheral players often stay as understudies at clubs for much of their careers. Though Daniel Amartey is likely to leave Leicester City for more opportunities.
Daniel Amartey is another admirable squad player at Leicester City: a man of faith, quiet yet imposing ability on the pitch, a sense of duty, a professional with time to sign fans’ autographs. And, most interestingly, someone who obviously appreciates his position as holding one of the best jobs in the world. All exhibited by a smile on the Ghanaian’s face.
That said, personality and due diligence aren’t really enough in the pro’ sports sphere. Every club in that arena, whether top-flight or lower level, must have a deep roster. Which includes athletes who won’t be starters but who can step up and step in to make a difference when necessary.
That previous description is indeed the Ghana international’s role with the Foxes. Although when Amartey arrived at Leicester City, the video circulating on YouTube between the Blue Army had us incredibly wishfully dreaming. The then F.C. Copenhagen man broke from defence, through midfield at lightening pace with the ball straight into attack.
Honestly it was a sight to behold; with or without carte blanche to do so, Amartey should’ve attempted that style occasionally in the Premier League. Imagine a fast Harry Maguire. It would’ve perhaps made the former a cult star. Or at least solidified him as a starter for a lesser premiership outfit.
Leicester City player’s agent touts move
It is unlikely Amartey will get another attempt at staking a claim for a Leicester place: his agent has touted a transfer away from King Power Stadium for his client.
“We are looking to find new opportunities for Amartey.
“He’s been out of favour from the new gaffer [Brendan Rodgers]…
“But after his injury, they [Leicester City] consider him as surplus so there should be a way out.”
– Yussif Alhassan (Amartey’s agent)

Foxes of Leicester believe it’s a shame Amartey got so badly injured, because he does offer versatility and uniqueness to City. Yet we wish him well if he does leave soon.
