Issahaku receives support from mum

In the game against Norwich City, Issahaku's presence and performance in Leicester's midfield field were unmissable. He was substituted in the 88th minute for James Justin.

In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh, Issahaku's mum was spotted in the stands chanting as Leicester City fans cheered the team to victory.

After the game, the 20-year-old Black Star player shared the big moment with his mum as they posed for photos.

While many doubt the future of Issahaku's loan stint with Leicester City FC, sports analyst Lawrence Baidoo told YEN.com.gh in an exclusive interview that "he is closer to staying at the club than leaving."

With Leicester City close to sealing Premier League return, it is increasingly likely Issahaku would like to stay at the club. He's enjoyed a brilliant period so far, and signing a permanent deal was one of the reasons he probably didn't make it to the AFCON just so he could play the reported number of games required for Leicester to activate their purchase option," Baidoo added.
