Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall has hinted that his Leicester City future is out of his hands amid the club’s bid to avoid breaches of financial regulations.

The midfielder is the subject of transfer talk once again with Brighton and Brentford sniffing around and looking to take advantage of City’s concerns over Profit and Sustainability Rules (PSR). As an academy graduate, Dewsbury-Hall is City’s most profitable player and his sale would make a substantial difference to the club’s bid to balance the books, whether that’s for this year’s accounts, which close on June 30, or the next set, which start from July.

The 25-year-old had previously said he had “no intention” of leaving City and has now reiterated his happiness at his boyhood club as they head back into the Premier League. But, he has suggested that his opinion may not count for everything.

“I have been here since I was a kid,” he told BBC Sport. “I love everything about the club. I grew up and managed to play in the first team. I am happy.

“I have never said I am actively wanting to leave. That sort of stuff is not up to me. You never know with football. The season is about to start, so we will see.”

No matter what happens this summer as regards City complying with PSR, they are still expected to receive a points deduction during the upcoming campaign. They have been charged by the Premier League for breaching PSR for the three-year cycle finishing in 2023 and the precedent set by the cases involving Everton and Nottingham Forest are that they will have points taken from them.

“We understand that may happen,” Dewsbury-Hall added. “We are humans. We see it on social media. But it's out of our hands. We’ve got a duty now to make sure we are in the best possible shape going onto the pitch, whatever happens.”
