Amartey ready for any role at Leicester

LEICESTER City star Daniel Amartey says he has no problem with being moved around different positions on the pitch.
The 21-year-old joined the Foxes from Danish side FC Kobenhavn in January, and made five appearances as Claudio Ranieri’s men won the topflight for the first time ever in May.
Owing to the void created by the departure of N’Golo Kante to Chelsea this season, the Ghanaian has largely been deployed in central midfield, even if he has as well played in defence on some occasions.
“Everyone is helping me [settle at the club],” Amartey told Leicester Mercury.
“I like my team-mates because they are always talking to me, and they are one. They help each other on the pitch.
“It is difficult when you come into a new team. You have to be strong. You have to learn a lot in training and outside training.
“It was okay, they put me at right-back and I have to do my best there. Then they put me at centre-back and I have to do my best. It is okay. Now I am in central midfield. I have to do my best to help the team wherever I play.”
Amartey has made six league appearances so far this season.
He continued: “I have found it good to get a run in the team but I can’t be satisfied. I have to keep on working and keep helping the team and my team- mates on the pitch.
“I have to improve winning my tackles, 50-50 balls. I have to help the defenders and give good passes.
“It is up to me, I have to focus, work hard on my training, listen to my coach and improve. I can get better.” –
