Flip Benkovic returns to Leicester after Cardiff loan

Wed 06 January 2021 | 15:02

Leicester City have confirmed that Croatian defender Flip Benkovic is heading back early from his loan stint at Cardiff.

The Croatia international joined the Bluebirds in October on what was meant to be a season-long loan but he has not found the chance to play with the championship club.

The 23-year-old has only made one substitute appearance for

Cardiff

, which was against

Wycombe

last week.

Cardiff said in a statement: “

Cardiff City can confirm that Filip Benkovic has been recalled by parent club Leicester City. We’d like to thank Filip for his services and wish him the best for the future

.”

Benkovic

joined

Leicester

for a reported fee of £13m in 2018 from

Dinamo Zagreb

but he has not played in a Premier League match yet. He has spent time at

Bristol City

and

Celtic

on loan spells.
