Daniel Amartey is looking forward to continuing his progress at Leicester City once he returns from injury.

The 23-year-old has been out of action since suffering an ankle problem in the Foxes’ 1-1 Premier League draw with West Ham United at the end of October.

He is working hard to get back to fitness and was recently rewarded with a new contract to keep him at King Power Stadium until 2022.

The Ghana international has made 60 appearances in all competitions for the East Midlanders to date, scoring one goal, and he was delighted to put pen to paper on the new deal.

“I am very happy to sign this contract at Leicester City,” he told the club’s website.

“I am a simple and easy guy. I work hard and I focus.” Manager Claud Puel has put his faith in the African youngster and the former Djurgardens ace is eager to repay his boss as soon as he is able to get back out on the pitch.

“By God’s grace, my recovery is getting better and I have to be strong when I come back,” he added.

“I have to be ready, for the club and for the manager.”

Leicester are back in action on Saturday wen they make the daunting trip to Stamford Bridge to take on high-flying Chelsea and the Foxes can be backed at 10.00 to take an unlikely three points. Maurizio Sarri’s Blues are on offer at 1.30 with the draw priced at 5.00.

The match will come too soon for Amartey but, with nine outings under his belt this term already, the Accra-born ace is content with how things are going.

“Personally, I am happy because last season I didn’t get much playing time and this season the manager gave me the chance so, for me, I was very happy,” he continued.
