Shinji Okazaki confirms he is leaving Leicester City this summer

Japanese footballer Shinji Okazaki has confirmed that he would be parting ways with Leicester City when the current season comes to a close. The 33-year-old has been with the Foxes for the past four years but he is prepared to take up a new challenge with the view of playing regularly in the centre-forward position.

Speaking to Japanese outlet Nikkei, Okazaki acknowledged that he has not been satisfied with his time at the east Midlands outfit despite the fact that he was crowned a Premier League crown during his first season. He added that he has become fed up with the role of linking up play between the midfield and the attack, and would prefer to move somewhere else where he is assured of the striker’s position.
