This was always going to a crucial campaign for Leicester City midfielder Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall with the Foxes having sent him out on loan to Luton Town in the summer to get him first-team experience in the Championship.
The 22-year-old returned to Leicester in the summer following a very impressive loan spell with Blackpool in League One before the campaign was halted. The midfielder had managed to register four goals and one assists in his ten appearances (Sofascore) at Bloomfield Road and was establishing himself swiftly as one of the best players in the English third tier.
Following that impressive form in League One, it was not going to be difficult for Leicester to find a club in the Championship who were willing to take him on loan for this season.
Luton eventually were the side that managed to secure his arrival on a temporary basis. The 22-year-old has slotted straight into the side under Nathan Jones and looked at home in the English second tier.
So far this term, Dewsbury-Hall has managed to make 28 Championship appearances and he has managed to register two goals and four assists during that period (Sofascore).
However, that does not tell the full story, with the midfielder proving he can perform his defensive duties well too by averaging 1.6 tackles, 1.3 interceptions and winning 4.9 duels per game (Sofascore).
In terms of quality in possession, the midfielder has managed to average 1.5 key passes per game and a passing accuracy of 76% (Sofascore).
Dewsbury-Hall’s performances have been impressing his team-mates at Luton and James Shea was glowing with praise for him back in December describing him as being ‘absolutely class’ and being one of the Hatters’ best-performing players this term.
Jones has also been highly praising of the midfielder throughout his loan spell with the Hatters labelling him as an ‘outstanding player’ and hailing Luton’s ‘excellent recruitment’ of him during the summer.
Given all these glowing reports it would be no surprise at all to see Leicester decide to take more of a closer look at him in pre-season next term to see if he can feature for them yet. The 22-year-old certainly looks like he has the technical ability and the all-round game to play in the Premier League.
Therefore, Leicester, who under Brendan Rodgers do give chances to young players, could well hand him regular involvement in the top-flight next campaign. Given how well he has performed in both League One and the second tier he has earned the right to impress his parent club.
