Former Leicester City striker Harry Panayiotou is set to continue his career in Spain.
The 21-year-old, who was released by the Foxes this summer, is reportedly wanted by La Liga clubs, and by the Spanish national team as well.
Marca has an article this Saturday saying that sides from the three Spanish top divisions are after him, as he has “chosen to put an end to his spell in England”.
It’s not exactly what the English media say, as recent reports claimed the youngster failed to impress at Leicester and ended up being shown the door. He was recently suggested to be a good signing for Yeovil Town.
But Marca are convinced he’s a top player, mentioning his incredible international record, as he scored seven goals in twelve matches for Saint Kitts and Nevis.
As Spain are the country where Panayiotou’s mother was born, the national team have reportedly called him, and invited him to have a citizenship.
Panayiotou recently quoted: “I’m Caribbean and I identify myself more with the Spanish than the English culture. I’m ready to meet new challenges in my career and Spain fits what I want. I’ve always liked their league, it’s very technical and with players of a special quality. Although I grew up in England, I will adapt well to the passing football”.
Panayiotou played for Leicester since the U-18 level. He also had loan spells at Port Vale and Raith Rovers before being released.
