| The brightest prospects within the Leicester City academy revealed
beer777 Leicester City academy graduate Ben Chilwell made his first senior start for England on Friday night in a 0-0 draw against Croatia. The match was a momentous moment for the young left-back, as well as the youth set-up at City’s disposal at Belvoir Drive. Harvey Barnes, on loan at West Bromwich Albion, was also named in Aidy Boothroyd’s Under-21 England squad for the first time.
A name already familiar to City fans, Choudhury has been a stalwart for the Under-23s at the King Power Stadium. The tenacious midfielder, now captain of the side, has made 54 appearances since progressing through the club’s youth academy. He has also managed to make 10 appearances for the City first-team, breaking in at the back end of the 2017/18 campaign under current boss Claude Puel. Choudhury has also had a taste of international football, managing to make four appearances for the England Under-21 side.
Signed from Chester in July 2017, defender Hughes has become a key player for the City Under-23 side. His assured presence at the back help ensure Leicester challenged for the title in the Premier League 2 last season. The centre-back was also prolific in front of goal last season as he bagged seven goals in only 19 games.
From one player who has not yet had a taste of international football, beer777 to one who has impressed through the age groups. Versatile defender Johnson has represented the Three Lions from Under-15 level all the way through to Under-20, where he has made four appearances and scored two goals. Johnson was also a key member of the squad that lifted the Under-19 Euros in 2017.
A player who has only been at the club for a matter of months, Wright signed for City on January deadline day from Blackburn Rovers. He has scored in his last two appearances for City’s Under-23 side in a 2-2 draw with Brighton and Hove Albion and a slim defeat to Arsenal. His record in the Premier League 2 is actually pretty impressive for an attacking midfielder having netted six goals in only 18 appearances for City and Blackburn combined.
One man who is surely also set for more international recognition is attacking midfielder Layton Ndukwu. Arguably one of the most talented players in City’s academy set-up, beer777 the midfielder has become known for his vision and skill on the ball. Comfortable on both flanks, Ndukwu has started the new season in fine form by bagging three goals in only four appearances for the Under-23s. He has made 56 appearances for the side since breaking through so surely is set for bigger things soon.
