Speaking of his new deal, Dewsbury-Hall revealed: "I’m so proud and I’m really happy. It’s a great day for myself and my family. A lot of hard work has gone into this deal, and it’s a really nice feeling to get it done. Now, I’m just looking forward to the future. 

“I have a really good relationship with the Football Club. I’ve been here since I was eight-years-old, so it was a no-brainer really when I sat down and we spoke about the deal. I’ve got big, big ambitions for the future, and I know the Football Club have too.”

Dewsbury-Hall is a graduate of Leicester's academy and opened his Premier League goalscoring account towards the end of the 2021/22 campaign, netting a superb long-range strike in the 2-1 win over Crystal Palace at King Power Stadium.
