Ben Marshall admits he was frustrated not to have been given an opportunity at Stoke City, but is hopeful of playing in the Premier League with Leicester City.

The winger joined Leicester on a three-and-a-half year contract in January after impressing on loan at Sheffield Wednesday in the first half of the season.

He left Stoke having failed to make a first-team appearance for the club and he is unsure why he was not handed a chance at the Britannia Stadium.

However, with the Foxes aiming to make a late push for the play-offs, the 20-year-old is optimistic of fulfilling an ambition of turning out in the top flight.

"It was frustrating at Stoke as I really wanted to get a chance in the first team," said Marshall. "I felt I was a bit unlucky.

"It seems to be more difficult for young lads to get into the side at Stoke than at most other clubs. I don't know why. Hopefully I can play in the Premier League with Leicester one day.

"Everyone here has the ambition to play in the Premier League and I think we have a good chance this year."
