Former Leicester City youngster Kamal Sowah has revealed he had ‘had enough’ of loan deals at the club, hence his move away this summer.
Sowah had been at Leicester since a move from Right to Dream in 2018, joining their under 23 side as the Foxes looked to the future.
He was highly rated at the club but never made the breakthrough or, indeed, an appearance, instead spending the last three years on loan with OH Leuven in Belgium.
He was a regular during his time there, with 13 goals and ten assists in 72 games in all competitions, far more than he would have managed at the King Power Stadium.
It was felt he would return to Leicester this summer and potentially fight for a place, but instead, he ended up departing permanently, electing to make an £8.1m move to Club Brugge in Belgium.
And he’s now revealed it was his growing unhappiness at going out on loan that led to the move.
“I felt I was making progress and that it could work if I got some time,” he told SportMagazine.
“I felt a lot of respect too, but not yet that I was close to the A-team. The coaches told me there was still work to do, but every coach says that. Here too.
“I resisted going on loan because I had enough after three years. I wanted to go to a club I could call my home. I was tired of always going back and forth.
“If you are loaned, you are the plaything of different parties. Whoever is definitively sold is part of a club’s plans. That’s what I wanted.”
