When Leicester City signed Neil Danns in 2011, they were hoping that the midfielder would go on to make a positive impact for the club during his time at the King Power Stadium.
Danns initially made a relatively encouraging start to his time with the Foxes as he scored five goals and provided three assists in 29 league appearances as his side secured a ninth-place finish in the Championship.
However, the midfielder was unable to replicate these performance levels for Leicester in the following season as he was loaned out on two occasions by the club to Bristol City and Huddersfield Town.
The Foxes sanctioned another temporary switch for Danns in the 2013/14 campaign before allowing the former Crystal Palace man to leave on a permanent basis as he sealed a move to Bolton Wanderers.
Here, we take a look at how Danns has been getting on since leaving Leicester…
During his permanent spell at Bolton, Danns made 73 appearances for the club in the Championship over the course of two seasons.
However, despite being a mainstay in the Trotters’ side in the 2015/16 campaign, the midfielder was unable to prevent the club from suffering relegation to League One.
Danns opted to move to Bury in 2016 and went on to play for the club for three seasons before joining Tranmere Rovers for the 2019/20 season.
Short spells with Radcliffe, Halifax Town and Connah’s Quay Nomads followed for Danns before he decided to move to Macclesfield FC last month.
The 38-year-old has made an encouraging start to his spell with the Silkmen as he scored in their recent clash with Charnock Richard in the North West Counties Football League.
Danns will be hoping to help Macclesfield secure promotion this season by featuring regularly for the club at this level this season.
The Silkmen will be looking to back up their recent victory over Wythenshawe Town by producing a positive performance against Squires Gate this weekend.
