James: It all starts here
Midfielder Matty James feels his move to Leicester signals the start of his career.
James completed his move from Manchester United on Tuesday evening in a deal that also saw defender Ritchie De Laet swap Old Trafford for the King Power Stadium.
The 20-year-old had a fantastic schooling at United but insists the time was right to move on and he is looking forward to making the step up from playing reserve football to help Leicester's promotion push next season.
"I definitely feel my career is about to start," James, whose only previous first-team experience was a loan spell at Preston, told the club's official website. "The loan move to Preston was good for me as it put me into the real world. I wasn't in the bubble of Manchester United, I was playing real man's football. But I think going back to play for United's reserves was hard because I had already had a taste of first-team football.
"It was hard to leave United because that was all I had known but there comes a time when you have to say you are ready to go and prove yourself, and when this opportunity popped up I was over the moon.
"Leicester want to improve and move forward - they want to go up. Some clubs are just happy where they are but Leicester are moving in the right direction. You can sense the ambition straight away."
