Leicester City will be begging Daniel Amartey to stay once he has fulfilled his potential in three seasons’ time, according to the manager he faces in Tuesday night’s Champions League clash.

Stale Solbakken knows Amartey having guided his career for 18 months at Copenhagen and predicts his ability will have major clubs clamouring for his signature eventually.

Leicester signed Amartey for £5million in January and while he can play in central defence or right-back Claudio Ranieri has utilised him alongside Danny Drinkwater in midfield this season, as a replacement for N’Golo Kante.

'I am more surprised no other Premier League teams fought to buy him,’ said Solbakken. 'I think Leicester scouted the right man and he will only get better and better as a footballer.

'In Copenhagen no one can speak highly enough of him, on and off the pitch. He steadily became better and better every month.

'In two or three years’ time Leicester will be on their knees praying that he signs a new contract.

'I think Ranieri sees some of the things I say here as he plays every time now as Drinkwater’s shadow on the pitch, doing the dirty work and playing the safe passes. He lets the offensive player express himself.

'He came to Leicester when the team were winning every week and Kante was playing in his best position. But he has gradually developed into a Premier League player.'
