Hamza Choudhury who was born in 1997 signed his first professional contract with Leicester City in the Premier League back in 2015/16 season at the age of 18.

Leicester City have been in rather poor form recently. The side finished 18th in the league last season. With just 34 points in 38 matches, the team failed to avoid the relegation zone and we’re demoted to the Championship the following season.
The team’s major motto will be to perform incredibly well in the ongoing championship season and thereby make a sublime return to the Premier League next season. The onus will be on the quality players in the team currently including Hamza Choudhury to help the side achieve its objectives hereon.
