Luke Thomas proud of Leicester progress

Luke Thomas is delighted with his progress at Leicester City.

The full-back has been with City since the age of seven, making his way up through the academy.

He explained what it means to a local lad to represent his club and admitted that he was more nervous for his debut for City than he was for the England U21s.

“I'm a Leicester lad, I grew up as a Leicester lad," he said.

“I used to go to the games when I was younger and watch all of the players and learn from them. The whole of my family are Leicester fans as well, so it's great now I'm in the first team, they get to come and watch, they support Leicester so they want us to win as well."

“The club for me was more nerve-wracking with me supporting them, I didn't want to let the team that I supported down. I'm a boyhood Leicester fan."
