Leicester City defender Daniel Amartey linked with move back to FC Copenhagen

FC Copenhagen coach Ståle Solbakken had downplayed reports that Ghanaian defender Daniel Amartey will be making his way back to the club.

Amartey last made an appearance for Leicester City back in 2018 against West Ham before he sustained an ankle injury.

The 25-year-old has been on the hunt for a new home and is hoping he will secure a deal in the transfer window and reports have already linked him back to Copenhagen.

“He said he wants to go home [to Copenhagen],” Solbakken told Denmark’s BT.

When asked if the Danish club has the budget to sign Amartey, Solbakken said: “No, we don’t, not [even] close.”

“But I don’t think he’s going to be expensive in the transfer market because Leicester want to get rid of his salary. But I don’t think it’s going to be here and now.”
