Leicester City defender Christian Fuchs has signed a new-one year contract with the club.

The 33-year-old former Austria captain has extended his stay despite previously stating that he would leave the club this summer.

After joining from Schalke on a free transfer in 2015, Fuchs has made 118 appearances for Leicester and was a key figure in the 2015-16 Premier League winning side.

Speaking to LCFC.com, Fuchs said: “I’m thrilled to be signing a new one-year deal with Leicester City Football Club. It’s an exciting time for everyone, with a new training ground being built and some fantastic young talent coming through.

“Our ambition is to play good football and continue to improve. The Club and our fans have always been great with me and I want to give back as much as possible. I can’t wait to see what next season brings for this Football Club!”
