HITC Sport understands Leicester are set to recall midfielder from loan spell.

Leicester City are poised to recall midfielder Hamza Choudhury from his loan spell at Championship side Burton Albion, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Choudhury rejoined Burton on loan last August on a season-long loan spell after ending the previous season on loan at the Pirelli Stadium.

The 19-year-old made 13 league appearances last season for the Brewers to help them win promotion from League One after joining on loan in February and Nigel Clough was keen to bring him back for this season in the Championship.

Choudhury made 14 appearances in all competitions for Burton starting in eight of those games for Clough's side.

The classy midfielder found himself playing a back-up role during November and his last appearance for Burton came in the 1-0 home defeat to Huddersfield on December 13th.

Leicester have now decided to cut short his season-long loan spell early to bring him back to the King Power Stadium.

Choudhury is highly-rated at Leicester after progressing through the ranks at the club and he was rewarded with a new four-year deal in the summer prior to his move to Burton.
