Arriving from Ghanaian club Right to Dream back on January 30th 2018, Kamal Sowah didn’t stay long at Leicester City, shipped out on loan to OH Leuven in Belgium the next day.
The youngster signed a four-year contract when arriving at King Power Stadium, but is expected to stay with the second-tier Belgian side until June 2020.
Hardly used last season, Sowah has since made his way into the first-team for the current campaign, and while he only made late appearances in the first three league games, he has started the last two, even scoring in a 4-0 win over KSV Roeselare.
Moved to right-wing, it appears the 19-year-old is enjoying himself in his new role, also picking up two assists in a 6-0 cup win over RFC Wetteren.
This form has led to a few plaudits from his teammates, who have embraced his ability, especially Thomas Henry, the club’s centre-forward.
He said, relayed by Walfoot: “We’re working on it. We have a good feeling. It’s great that he’s getting more and more confident. He’s a kid who will make it. He has the right mentality.
“I’m happy to be playing with him. His positioning is good. He can be decisive. His passing is a plus and he also has a good shot. He’s gifted, a very complete player”.
These are exactly the kind of words Leicester, who clearly saw something in him, will be wanting to hear as he enters the final year of his two-and-a-half-year loan with the Proximus League side.
