Black Stars winger Abdul Fatawu Issahaku has revealed he wants to make the permanent move to Leicester City from Sporting CP, once his loan stint comes to an end.
The 19-year-old completed the loan move from the Portuguese side in the summer and has gone on to score twice in 15 league games. City are said to have the option of a deal becoming permanent next summer.
It is said that City will pay a fee of €17 million (£14.6m) if they earn promotion back to the Premier League and if the player plays 60 percent of City’s matches during the season. Helping the club to promotion back to the top-flight is something Fatawu is keen to accomplish.
“Premier League is my dream league, so I’m hoping to play there and since arriving, Leicester has given me a different feeling,” he told Soccer Laduma. “How the people here have been has given me more confidence to stay here.”
“For me, I’d be happy to stay at Leicester because I know and believe in the team, that we will qualify for the Premier League, so I’ll be happy to stay here.”
