Bartosz Kapustka is £7.5m down the drain for Leicester

Leicester City’s Bartosz Kapustka is currently on a season-long loan switch in the Belgian second-tier and he should be binned permanently in the summer.

The 22-year-old winger is enduring an average spell with OH Leuven, where he’s scored four goals in 20 games across all competitions.

He is currently struggling to make a serious statement at a lower level and the chances he can cut the grade at the King Power Stadium look slim.

Leicester signed Kapustka for £7.5million (Sky Sports) back in 2016 under Claudio Ranieri just after they had won the Premier League.

Kapustka looked a fleet-footed dazzling attacker at international level and it appeared that Leicester may have landed a potential bargain.

But he’s not been able to cut the grade for the Foxes and made just three senior appearances for them.

The winger’s reputation continues to go downhill after failing on loan with SC Freiburg and his current loan stint is another example of his struggles.

Leicester should look to offload Kapustka at the end of the season and will need to be prepared to take a significant loss on the £7.5million they coughed up for him originally.
