Brandon Fernandes' stay at Leicester City Extended

Brandon Fernandes' stay at Leicester City FC extended for a week

ASD Cape Town have confirmed that Brandon Fernandes' stay at Leicester City Football Club has been extended for another week. Brandon is doing very well at the Championship club and is enjoying his stay there.


Brandon has been training with the Leicester development squad at the Championship club's top class training facility, Belvoir Drive. The club Development Director was absent from training for the majority of last week due to his commitments abroad, and upon his return expressed a desire to see more of Brandon, who will remain in Leicester until all least next weekend. Reports back so far have been very encouraging.

Brandon's time in England has attracted global interest, and Brandon has thoroughly enjoyed his stay in Leicester. He has spent time with local Member of Parliament Keith Vaz, who has championed Brandon's career since identifying him as a special talent on a trip to Goa several years ago. Brandon has also met the Deol brothers, stars of Bollywood movie 'Yamla Pagla Deewana 2' when they shot scenes in Leicester last weekend.

Brandon said earlier today: "I am really enjoying Leicester. Everyone has been so welcoming. The quality of training is excellent, and it was a lot of fun to watch the first team play Nottingham Forest this weekend as they are local rivals. I have also enjoyed seeing the city, especially as it is preparing for Christmas. Lots of things here remind me of home"
