Matty James says he is ready to deliver some "massive" performances for Leicester City this season.

The 21-year-old midfielder said he had learned so much from his first full season at first-team level with City following his summer move from Manchester United, and is confident he will be a better player for the experience.

James admits there are still plenty of areas for him to work on when he returns to training with the rest of the City squad on July 1, but he is relishing the prospect of another promotion challenge.

"I had a bad couple of seasons really, from the age of 18 until 20, with two bad injuries that set me back, so last year was the first proper season that I've had," he said.

"That was massive for me and now I'm getting ready to put in some massive performances for Leicester next season.

"I learn something new every day, game and year.

"I want to improve and learn as much as I can. Hopefully, fingers crossed, I want to progress to the Premier League with Leicester and I am still learning and that's my ambition – to keep learning and keep getting better.

"There are so many things for a central midfield player to work on in terms of their overall game that there's always something to improve. I just want to be solid, cement a regular place in the team and put a shift in every single week.

"If I can get a couple of goals and assists – great. I want to be a complete midfield player.

"I've really enjoyed this year, being near the top end throughout the season and the play-offs, and I want to experience that again.

"If we can finish the season in the top two then great, but if not we'll definitely give it our all in the play-off places, if that's the way we have to do it."
