Sowah could be Leicester’s midfield star

Sowah could be Leicester’s midfield star

Leicester City could potentially have a star on their hands next season as Kamal Sowah returns from his loan spell at OH Leuven.

The Ghana international, who has been with the Belgian outfit for the past three seasons, has been contracted to the Foxes since January 2018 but is yet to be afforded his first team debut at the King Power Stadium.

With Leuven manager Marc Brys suggesting that he working on keeping the midfielder in Belgium beyond the expiry of his loan deal, it might now be time for Brendan Rodgers to grant Sowah his chance at Leicester.

Will Leicester City finish in the top four?

Yes!

Not this year…

Not this year...

In his time with Leuven, the 21-year-old has been in great form. He has made 72 appearances for the Proximus League outfit, scoring 13 goals and providing ten assists in all competitions.

The majority of those have come in the current campaign, with Sowah having racked up 14 direct goal contributions, that record only being beaten by striker Thomas Henry and attacking midfielder Xavier Mercier.

Intriguingly, the former has already been waxing lyrical about the on-loan Leicester man, stating that he is a “complete player”.

That is certainly praise which the Leicester hierarchy will want to hear with Sowah penning a new long-term deal with the club in September 2020.

Considering his form and the faith put him in by the Foxes with that aforementioned contract extension, he could soon be primed for an opportunity at the King Power Stadium. Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers was publicly on the search for a midfielder in the January transfer window but a move failed to transpire.

If such a player remains on the Foxes’ shopping list heading into the summer, Sowah could certainly be the man tasked with that responsibility instead of being once again allowed to rejoin Leuven.

Should he continue his upward trajectory in the East Midlands, he could be a star in the making for Leicester.
