Leicester City captain Wes Morgan has extended his stay at the club for a further year.

Morgan will now be under contract until the summer of 2020 after Brendan Rodgers recently emphasised the importance his captain has to the team.

Since his arrival on Filbert Way in 2012, Morgan has made 292 appearances from the club and captained his side to Championship and Premier League titles.

After signing his new contract, Morgan told lcfc.com: “It means a lot to me. We’ve been through so many ups and downs together as a Football Club, and I’ve been right at the heart of it from the very beginning, so to extend my time here means very much to me and I’m very happy.

“I can see a very, very bright future for Leicester City. We’ve got a lot of young players who have so much potential and even the current players we’ve got, we’ve got so much experience, we’ve been through it all and we can help the younger players to achieve their full potential.

“It’s all about not being individuals, it’s all about everyone collectively chipping in, doing their part, to help the greater cause, which is making Leicester City successful.”
