Leicester City midfielder Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall has hinted at a return to Luton Town next season after a stellar campaign on loan at Kenilworth Road.
Having impressed last season with four goals in ten games on loan at League One Blackpool, the Foxes handed Dewsbury-Hall a four-year-contract before sending him on a season-long-loan to Luton. With two goals and four assists in 26 Championship outings so far, he has handled the step up superbly, winning the club’s player of the month award three times in a row between November and January.
The youngster has been on Leicester’s books since the age of eight, turning out for the senior team twice in domestic cup competitions. However, with established internationals like James Maddison and Youri Tielemans competing for midfield spots, opportunities at the King Power are likely to remain limited.
Dewsbury-Hall said: “If next season Luton were interested again it’s something that I would definitely take seriously, because I feel like I’ve improved as a player here and it’s been good for my development and my career.”
At 22-years-old, first team opportunities become increasingly important and another season in the second tier could grant him just that.
The fact Dewsbury-Hall has stated that “serious chats with lots of people” will be had at the end of the season is certainly encouraging for Luton Town, but with progressive midfield stats that can rival Reading’s Michael Olise and Blackburn Rovers’ Harvey Elliott, there will be no shortage of potential suitors.
His skillset certainly fits into a Brendan Rodgers midfield, but unless first-team assurances can be given, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall could be set to light up the Championship for another year.
