Leon, who has an English grandfather, joined the Foxes at the age of six, first played for the Foxes’ under-9s and turned out for the under-19s as recently as March. He announced his decision on his Facebook page.
“Thanks to Leicester City Football Club for the offer to extend my scholarship agreement/contract. After careful consideration and discussions with my family, I feel I have to decline this offer. I feel it is time for me to move on and further my career and development elsewhere,” he posted.
The 17-year-old, however, has yet to reveal his plans. He only wrote: “Please continue to follow and support me in my new venture.”
