Leicester City's Ben Marshall hoping for an even better second year
One year on from joining Leicester City, winger Ben Marshall says he is delighted with how his career is progressing and even more excited about what lies ahead.
Since arriving at the King Power Stadium from Stoke in January last year, the 21-year-old has established himself in Nigel Pearson's first-team squad and his impressive performances have led to a call up to the England under-21 squad.
Marshall made his debut for the under-21s in September when he went on off the bench in a European under-21 Championship qualifier against Azerbaijan.
Marshall believes his international recognition was only due to being given the chance to showcase his talent in the City side by manager Nigel Pearson.

"My first year has gone brilliantly," he said. "I have been playing regularly, which is what I needed, and I got an England call-up. I never thought that would happen.
"The reason I got the call-up is because I came here, was playing regularly and doing well. I wouldn't have got that if I had still been at Stoke.
"I have scored some important goals this season and last season. I have chipped in to try to help the team out.
"I am really excited for what is coming as well.
"We have got ourselves into the top two and we have just got to stay there. Hopefully, we can stay there."
Marshall has made 48 appearances for City since his move, scoring eight times, including memorable strikes against Chelsea in the FA Cup quarter-final defeat at Stamford Bridge last season.
