Ghanaian winger Fatawu Issahaku crowned Leicester City’s Men’s Young Player of the Season

Leicester City has announced Ghanaian winger, Fatawu Issahaku, as the recipient of the Men’s Young Player of the Season award.

The talented 20-year-old on loan from Sporting Lisbon has been recognized for his exceptional skills and contributions to the team throughout the season.

Issahaku‘s impact was felt profoundly as he notched up an impressive tally of six goals from the wing. Among his standout performances was a wonderful hat-trick in Leicester’s dominant 5-0 victory over Southampton.

However, Issahaku’s influence extended beyond scoring goals; his creative flair resulted in an astonishing 13 assists throughout the season, cementing his status as one of Leicester’s key playmakers.

The 20-year-old made his club debut in the Championship just three days after signing, coming on as a 54th-minute substitute in a 1–0 home loss to Hull City. He quickly established himself as a key player for the Foxes, scoring his first goal for the club in a 3–1 away win against Swansea City on 21 October 2023.

Leicester City were promoted back to the Premier League when Leeds United suffered a 4-0 defeat to Queens Park Rangers on Friday evening at the Loftus Road Stadium.
