Signed by Leicester City from Cracovia back in 2016, Bartosz Kapustka never quite managed to make the cut at King Power Stadium.

There was a lot of promise there, but it never materialised into anything other than three first-team appearances and two loans to SC Freiburg and OH Leuven.

In the end, the 23-year-old left Leicester on a free last summer, returning to Poland by signing with Legia Warszawa on a free.

Since then, he’s made 12 appearances in all competitions, scoring once and picking up one assist, and is seemingly enjoying life back in his home country.

He said as much in an interview with Po Gwizdku, relayed by, and admitted it was his choice to return home.

He said: “I didn’t have to come back to Poland. I could have chosen a different direction. There were options from the Netherlands or the USA. However, I didn’t know what would come of it because I decided quite early on that if I could reach an agreement with Legia, I wanted to go to this club”.

Why? “It’s not easy abroad, especially when you don’t have a loved one around you. Here, in Warsaw, it is much better in this respect”.

The move to Legia was a long time coming, with the program mentioning the fact the Polish side had been interested in the past to get him on loan.

Kapustka said: “I always had it in the back of my mind when this topic came up during my foreign adventure, but when I was in Leicester, there was no chance for that”.
