Amartey, who joined Leicester City from Danish club Copenhagen in 2016 for a reported fee of up to £6 million, had a memorable spell with the Foxes. He played a vital role in their historic Premier League title triumph and also contributed to winning two other trophies during his time at the club.

Having made over 100 appearances for Leicester City and scoring two goals, Amartey became a respected figure within the squad. However, with the club’s relegation, a new chapter awaits the talented defender.
Recent reports have linked Amartey with a potential move to Turkey, with Besiktas rumoured to have held talks with the player. As a free agent, Amartey has the freedom to explore new opportunities and continue his professional career elsewhere.
