Leicester City midfielder Harvey Barnes has signed a new five-year contract with the club.

Barnes has broken into the first team under Brendan Rogers after an impressive loan spell in the Championship with West Bromwich Albion last season.

The 21-year-old scored his first Premier League goal in April after being with the club since the age of nine and was ‘delighted’ to extend his stay at King Power Stadium until 2024.

Speaking to LCFC TV, Barnes said: “I’m delighted. For me, the progression that I’ve had at the Club, from joining at such an early age to the position I’m in now, is something I want to continue, so when a new contract was mentioned, it was a no brainer.

“There’s going to be a lot of work going in over pre-season, and I think as a team we’re really strong at the minute, so next year could be a big year for us.”

Barnes follows in the footsteps of Christian Fuchs, who signed a new contract last month.
