Bartosz Kapustka has been offered a way out of Leicester City by Polish champions Legia Warsaw. The out-of-favour star wants to leave the King Power Stadium this summer, after just three senior appearances in four years.

Kapustka, who has one year left on his deal at the club, has failed to live up to the hype surrounding his performances as a teenager at Euro 2016. The owner of Legia Warsaw has said he will take Kapustka back to his homeland so he can rebuild his career.

Legia owner Dariusz Mioduski said: “He still has a one-year contract with Leicester. Bartek is a perfect example of a footballer who should have played in Legia at least a year ago. If he wants to rebuild with us, we invite him.”

If Kapustka was to leave for Legia, he would be earning himself a place in the Champions League. However, the Polish title-holders have to come through four rounds of qualifying to make the group stages.
