Irish U.21 debut, academy and development player in great progress!

Moving to Leicester City might not be the worst idea if you like to build a future in the game and have a life as a footballer. This club have in the past brought forward some of the best talents in the game, and also been able to form players that have found professional football elsewhere after not being recognized at Leicester City.

Shane Flynn is a young player that has frequently been involved with the first team this season seeing him on the bench a few teams and was in the squad for the Europa League game in Ukraine, so things are close. He has also progressed from U.18 levels with Ireland to this summer being involved with the U.21’s and it’s exciting time for the Irish man.

Examples of such as Sam Clucas and Che Adams who both had to move and find other ways to the professional game, after being overlooked at Leicester City, but in all it has worked out well for both. In that sense and in recent time we have seen the development of Harvey Barnes and Ben Chilwell both coming up from the academy and done well and escalated to the England schene.

You also have Hamza Choudhury and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall of recent players to blossom and show talent enough to be sure to be successful footballers for a long time, despite being either loaned out or seen their chances limited at the club at present time.

Kamal Sowah will Brendan Rodgers be able to sort out how to get him into the frame, or will he just be loaned back to Leuven or making a full transfer somewhere else, what about this seasons debutant Sidnei Tavares who also is said to get attention from Portugal and Spain.

Being at games in previous seasons TCF have seen many exciting players and one to really to have a look at is Shane Flynn, he can operate all along the left flank and it seems as if Leicester City are at the moment a place to go if you are left footed, with Ben Chilwell in the past and Luke Thomas this season being involved and taking their chance.

Shane is still only 19, and a prospect that should really be carefully looked at as his progress has seen him getting to the first team bench this season. Last season was a bit of struggle in the U.23’s since so many players were send out on loan, those in the squad had to take a lot of responsible at such a very young age.

He penned a new deal at the club in March after being positive and doing well and progress from his first days at the club back in 2018, signed from Bray Wanderers. Last season he played 18 games for the U.23, doing his jump from the U.18’s.

He is also involved at Ireland U.21 level and seen as a coming full cap man, and if he next season builds on this season, he might be lucky in getting games under Brendan Rodgers and hopefully excel from that level as well, exciting prospect and a fox already.
