The 22-year-old is having a stellar goal scoring season netting in 13 times so far this campaign. His teammate and Birmingham left-back Kristian Pedersen has backed his success and said -

"He makes the goals and is the difference for us at the moment,He is a top player and I’m sure he can play on a higher stage.
“So we just have to enjoy him while we can

However, a bid from the Foxes is unlikely considering they did let him go earlier when he had a trial at Leicester academy at the age of 16.

A sports enthusiast and an avid follower of football. Since childhood I was encouraged to play cricket and in no time it became a hobby. Gradually I found interest in other sports also. Football is in my blood and I love the electrifying ambiance that surrounds it. I often watch the pre and post match analysis of a match and try to learn how to analyze a football game. The thing that intrigues me the most is that there are so many things happening behind the scenes that are oblivious to our naked eyes. The technological advancements that has been made are phenomenal. I like analyzing a game from a statistical point of view. Being a data guy myself , I am firm believer of providing insights through facts and data. Though a game is always unpredictable , analyzing it from different dimensions can provide some very interesting conclusions.
