King hails midfield impact of Leicester pal Amartey

Leicester City midfielder Andy King has hailed the impact of Daniel Amartey.

The fullback has been converted into a midfielder this season, replacing N'Golo Kante, now of Chelsea.

"Daniel has filled in with happiness. He is young, still learning and has great potential," said King.

"He (Kanté) chose to play football somewhere else. It is normal. It was hard to lose him because probably no one in the league plays like him.

"But it is up to the coach how to replace him."
