FILIP BENKOVIC has departed Leicester City in search of a new club.

The former Celtic man joined the Foxes from Dinamo Zagreb in the summer of 2018 and went on to feature in the club’s first team and development squad ranks.

He also had loan spells with the Hoops – whom he helped to a domestic treble in 2018/19 – Bristol City, Cardiff City and OH Leuven.

A Leicester statement read: "The club would like to place on record its thanks to Filip for his professionalism and dedication during his time in Leicester – an experience we hope he can build on in during his future career.

"He begins the next chapter with the very best wishes of everyone at Leicester City."

Before Benkovic joined OH Leuven last January, Celtic were heavily linked with another move for the Croatian international.

Reports this January have sugged that the 24-year-old could be heading to Serie A outfit Udinese.
