A former Leicester City youngster has taken a modern-day approach to find a new football club, by advertising his availability on LinkedIn.

Ethan Holby was recently released by the Foxes but hasn’t given up his dream of pursuing a career in professional football.

The 19-year-old midfielder decided to enhance his search for a new side by posting on the social media site, specifically designed for business connections, to ask if there were any opportunities.

‘I’ve just turned 19 and I’m currently searching for a club,’ he wrote.

‘I recently left Leicester City F.C. after playing there for 10 years.

‘Can play anywhere in midfield, two footed so can play either wing.

‘I’ve got that never give up attitude which is why I’m still on the search and quitting will never cross my mind.

‘If anyone knows about any trials popping up or clubs that are releasing players and are in need of new, please let me know.’

Incredibly, Hodby has received more than 600 likes and 250 comments on his post, with various people suggesting trial opportunities or flagging up clubs’ officials to take a look.

Time will tell if he finds a new club, but he certainly deserves credit for thinking outside the box!
