The Dutch-born of Ghanaian descent is leaving the King Power Stadium outfit this week, Kickgh.com can exclusively confirm.
 
 
Leicester City have been stunned by the news highly rated full- Back Dennis Gyamfi will leave the club when his contract expires on Tuesday, June 30.
 
The 18-year-old full-back was among the players that Leicester confirmed had been offered a new deal when the retained list was announced last week, along with goalkeeper Oliver Bosworth midfielder Kasey McAteer and striker Dempsey Arlott-John.
 
However, Leicester have now been informed that Gyamfi will not be putting pen to paper on a new deal and sees his future lying away from the King Power Stadium.
 
That news came as a shock to Leicester, who were keen to keep the Netherlands youth international after promoting him to first-team training following the league's three-month hiatus due to the coronavirus crisis.
 
Numerous offers from the Foxes were rejected, with Gyamfi keen to pursue first-team opportunities in this stage of his career and he will be available in the market when his current deal expires.
 
Two clubs in England and a host across Europe are interested in the right-back’s services - with Gyamfi even more appealing due to his contract status.
 
Leicester would be due a compensation fee if Gyamfi moved to another English side this summer but would not receive a fee if he moved to the continent.
 
Gyamfi has made 11 appearances for Leicester’s youth ranks this season, with nine coming in the U18 Premier League
