Out of favour Leicester City defender, Daniel Amartey, is pushing for a move back to FC Copenhagen, according to his former boss at the Danish club.
The 25 year old Ghanaian hasn’t featured in the league for the Foxes since breaking his leg against West Ham in 2018.
The player’s agent has already spoken of his clients intentions of leaving the 2016 Premier League champions after featuring just once all season for Brendan Rodgers’ side.
But Amartey’s former boss Ståle Solbakken has revealed the player has informed him of where he wants to play next season.
He said he wants to go home [to Copenhagen],” Solbakken told Denmark’s BT.
When asked if the Danish club has the budget to sign Amartey, Solbakken said: “No, we don’t, not [even] close.
“But I don’t think he’s going to be expensive in the transfer market because Leicester want to get rid of his salary. But I don’t think it’s going to be here and now.”
Amartey, interestingly claimed both the Danish league title with FC Copenhagen, and the Premier League title with Leicester in the 2015/2016 season, after joining the English side in January 2016.
